“There is nothing in aviation that excites me more than helping someone solo an aircraft for the first time.”

Nate Grunwell

Macon Pilots Instructor

Thomas

Meet Thomas, he runs a local non-profit organization for the adult mentally challenged. We were so pleased to see this big heart foe people have enough room to love flying. Thomas takes on life with a full tank of gas and the pedal down so it was no surprise that he devoured his text books and always hungry for more knowledge.

Thomas is a busy guy leaving little room for scheduling full lessons often taking his lessons into the night. Thomas has overcome having to take shortened lesson and on February 7th, 2014 solo’d for the first time. Thomas was grinning for two days straight after that and so was his flight instructor. We are so proud of Thomas’ progress as student and he is now working on cross countries. He’ll be taking a check ride very soon.
