March 8/15 – Private pilot of the year!

As you may or may not know I got my Private Pilot License in April of last year.

Last night our St. Catharines Flying Club hosted an Annual Wing Banquet. It is dress up dinner affair where certificates of achievement are handed over to pilots who either get their Recreational permit or Private Pilot License or additional ratings such as night rating, multiengine, IFR, commercial etc.

It was a great time. I have received my PPL certificate but I was also announced as Private Pilot of the Year! The flying club combines the student’s score from the written exam and from the practical flight test and who ever scores the highest, will get their name on the “Private Pilot of the Year” trophy.
