Tommy Brogden IFR

Tommy Brogden passed his IFR checkride with DPE Greg Hudson in our PA28 140 on 8/07/19 at Asheboro Regional (KHBI). Well done!

Here’s Tommy after passing his PPL checkride on March 24, 2018 @ ASJ with DPE Henry Joyner. Congratulations!

Below is a picture of Tommy after he soloed on 3/3/17 @ KHNZ with x-winds making it a challenge (he did a great job)! Tommy lives Granville Co. and hopes to purchase a 182 in the future for business.
