CFI George Felix has advised that congratulations are in order for Gopher Flying Club member John Shelerud. John successfully completed his Private Pilot Checkride today with DPE Woody Minar @ KOEO. It was less than one year ago during Airventure 2016 when two Gopher Club members (George Felix and Jeff Long) traveled out to the FISKE approach control facility and met John, who was working as an ATC Supervisor and expressed an interest in getting his pilot’s certificate. Well done John!!
