Matt Link with DPE Henry Joyner after passing his Private Pilot Checkride

Matt Link passed his Private Pilot checkride on 8/17/017 with DPE Henry Joyner @ KASJ and is on his way to Jacksonville University this Fall.

Matt is a high school student from Orange County, NC. He took a 13 week course @ Emery Riddle last summer and first soloed in a 172. He soloed “again” with Empire Aviation in our C152 on March 12, 2016!
