Flying High

Our own Father Rob was off on another adventure last week! On Friday October 16th he took his first flight as a pilot at the AFI Training Center, Fullerton Airport. He flew a Cessna 172SP. His instructor Brandon Kuchmecki had so much confidence in him that he allowed Fr. Rob to be at the controls without training in a flight simulator beforehand. And just to prove it's all true, here is a picture of the certificate!
