Aircraft: Cessna N12234
“In early June, on a Saturday morning I flew off to Paso Robles for my checkride with Eric Cook. After 10 months of preparation, I couldn’t wait! The checkride was intense, but really good in terms of checking my knowledge and my skills against real-world scenarios, emphasizing safety and encouraging continued learning. I came back to Reid-Hillview late that day, tired, but absolutely thrilled about all of the new opportunities ahead!
I wouldn’t have passed without my awesome instructor, Cheryl Mitrus, who’s patience and excellent instruction was key. Thanks also go to Marc Young, who taught me how to consistently fly the formal landing approach and wouldn’t let me just do my own thing. To Jason Brown, whose expertise and practical application of the knowledge made the FAR rules logical and much easier to understand. And also to David Waksberg, who started me off with the very first lessons. Lastly, the staff at Aerodynamic Aviation has been exceptional all-around, and I’m so happy to be able to train here!
I’ve also taken to heart what Eric Cook said about the Private Pilot Certificate: it is a license to learn. I’m planning to continue training with Aerodynamic Aviation, starting with the Complex Endorsement, so that I can continue to explore the amazing world of aviation.” ~ Lukasz
