Mark Satin Obtains His Wings. CONGRATULATIONS!
« on: August 21, 2019, 09:44:21 pm »
Mark Satin obtained his wings this season with help of all the flight team.   Frank had the honors of awarded him his wings.  (I understand there is picture to come.)

Mark has successfully tamed the beast (his apprentice) and demonstrated that not only can he competently control his plane on the ground and in the air, but his aircraft repair skills have coincidentally also improved.  Mark looks forward to taking on the challenges of a new plane he has recently purchased.

Congratulations Mark!!!!!

Enjoy your new privileges. 

You have earned them.

That's excellent, Mark... congratulations.

The repair skills we are developing have been an added bonus  ;)

Here comes the SlowPoke!

Cheers!

Mark,

What you are saying was that it took about 15 of us to get you to a good place..... or you went through 14 instructors before you got one who knew what he was doing... and he was not there tonight ;)

Congrats.

Well done Mark! Congratulations on obtaining your wings. Now you need to warm up to the task of flying your “Slow Poke” (no pressure  :D).

 :D :D :D

I read this as an overall, covering statement.  From the perspective of a new flyer (me), one whom is practicing, crashing, and fixing... I took the meaning to be... (paraphrased) "...all the best on continuing to develop your flying and repairing skills..."  :D

I know it wasn't meant that way... but... from a certain point of view... it made so much sense to me.
