A warm congratulations to Dave M. for having successfully completed the Wings test!.

On July 7, Dave M. did his wings test and passed. Many other members were there to offer their encouragement after Dave had to deal with a deadstick on his first attempt and a perspective problem on his second attempt. Dave was just a bundle of nerves, and the sun was setting, but he managed to complete the test before it got too dark :)

Chief Instructor Max Perez and Matthew Stikeman award Dave with his Wings: (this picture was taken after the sun had set and had to be enhanced..:blink: )


Examining instructors Matt and Max watching Dave do his test. (this picture appears better becuase it was taken on his first attempt when the sun was still up...LOL..:rolleyes: )


Congratulation Dave!!!
