Meet Tye, a recent graduate of the University of Arkansas and Army Ranger in the National Guard. While working at a local sporting goods store he found the time and money to pay out of pocket to get his private pilots’ license. With hard work and dedication he excelled through the our program and he will finish amazingly close to the 40 minimum time requirement for private pilot.
September 3rd 2013 was an exciting day in the history of Macon Pilots as Tye’solo’d. The winds were calm and Tye beautifully performed three take offs and landings to full stop. When Tye exited the Piper Cherokee he was grinning from ear to to ear as his flight instructor explained the tradition of the-cutting-of-the-shirt-tails and proceeded to cut Tye’s shirt tail.
