October’s Student of the month

Cody Elliot

We wanted to take a moment to give a big shout-out to our October student of the month, Cody Elliot! It’s hard to believe that just a year ago, Cody spent his 16th birthday with us doing an introductory flight, and now, on his 17th birthday, he’s getting ready to take his private pilot check ride. We’re beyond impressed with Cody’s dedication and progress, and we can’t wait to see where his flying journey takes him next. Congrats, Cody!
