Antonin Stoddard Soloed!!
Our Ray Aviation scholar for this year, and also a recipient of the Sundance Flight Academy Scholarship on September 19th, 2021, left the surly bounds of Earth and piloted an aircraft without the ever watchful eye of a flight instructor. If you see Antonin, be sure to congratulate him on this accomplishment.

Lawson Laslo Passes his Check ride!
Congratulations to Ray Aviation Scholarship recipient and EAA Chapter 24 member Lawson Laslo on passing the check ride for his Private Pilot Certificate! On Monday morning, February 1, Lawson flew his beautiful 1946 Ercoupe, with Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE) Janusz Abczynski and passed his private pilot check ride. Lawson had soloed on his sixteenth birthday in January 2020 and has since been accumulating proficiency and flight training in a multiple aircraft. Although the check ride was originally scheduled to occur on Lawson's seventeenth birthday, a mandatory FAA/DPE meeting forced the rescheduling of the check ride to five days later.
