Congratulations to Gopher’s newest private pilot, Alex Winkelman. Alex passed his check ride today and according to his CFI Mark Jaeger did a great job on both the oral and flying portions of his practical test and worked very hard to achieve this goal. Now it’s time for some fun flying and on to additional ratings!
