Danny Beachy successfully passed his Private Pilot checkride on Wednesday, July 18, after only a few months of training.  Danny worked hard to complete all the requirements of his certificate and all his efforts are to be applauded.

Owning his own airplane, Danny made the most of early morning hours for practice.  His job and his family gave him all the support he needed, especially as he flew his first few cross country flights as far away as Thompson Falls and Kalispell.  For a student pilot to fly by himself across the mountains takes much planning and preparation.  And it paid off in a successful and fulfilling flight.

Since earning his pilot certificate, Danny has given his wife Linda and their four children their first airplane rides, and itís only the beginning for his family and friends.  Flying is rewarding and worth the effort it takes, and it culminates at its peak when the thrill of being in the air is shared with those closest to us.

Congratulations to Danny on his outstanding accomplishment.  I trust that he and his family will have many years of flying enjoyment.
