Tim Plunkett Private Pilot Checkride

Tim Plunkett passed his Private Pilot checkride on 1/27/2020 in our C172 at the Burlington-Alamance Airport (KBUY). Per Tim … this is a “life long dream come true!” Congrats Tim and well done!

And here’s Tim after he solo’d for the first time on July 19, 2018 @ KHNZ. Tim resides with his wife in Franklinton and is doing missionary work for those in need.
