Jeremy Eisenbrandt Private Pilot Check Ride May 30, 2014

Jeremy Eisenbrandt took his first lesson on May 3rd of this year … and here he is after passing his Private Pilot check ride at the Tri-County Airport on 5-30-14!

He’s congratulated by Designated Pilot Examiner Henry Joyner.  Jeremy completed his check ride just two weeks after his first solo.  He is commended for his hard work and motivation to complete the Private Pilot requirements in less that one month, a notable feat while working a 60+ hour work week on the nightshift.  Jeremy is now making arrangements to buy his first airplane!!!

And here’s an update from Jeremy on July 4th:

“Just wanted to say happy fourth and give you an update on me. Since I bought the Navion, I’ve flown over 30 hours in it! Today I spent some time with some EAA friends and flew the Ford Tri-Motor for over 30 minutes. Probably one of the coolest things I’ve done.
