Billy Szura’s first solo!

Billy Szura’s first solo!

Never too cold for this guy… Congratulations to William Szura on his first solo! He’s one of the hardest working students out there, and it shows! He made 3 perfect landings today, while his instructor Meredith Malczewski watched from the sidelines. Way to ring in the New Year and make your CFI proud!

Flying in the winter is not without its challenges, but at Region Flyers we never miss an opportunity to fly, especially on a cool crisp day without a cloud in the sky.

If you’ve ever thought about becoming a pilot, now is the time. Call us today to schedule your first lesson!

Nathan Schrock, a long time helicopter pilot and flight instructor, earned his wings today in a Cessna 172. Nate is now certified to fly not only helicopters, but single-engine land airplanes as well. What did he do to celebrate? He wasted no time hopping in a high-performance Beechcraft Bonanza, accompanied by CFI Caleb Johnston, in pursuit of his high-performance and instrument ratings. He’s seen here after successfully completing his checkride. Way to go Nate!
