How you can help your North Central Washington neighbors

Yesterday, I took Wenatchee World photographer Don Seabrook up to get some aerial photos of the fires that have blanketed North Central Washington.

While it was incredibly difficult to see through the smoke and ash, what we were able to see will stay with me for a long time.

The devastation is enormous, and I could not stop thinking about all the families affected by these fires. I immediately ran to a computer and donated to the Community Foundation of North Central Washington’s Fire Relief Fund.

This community always amazes me with its support for those who need it in this region, especially during emergencies like this one. If you would like to support families and residents affected by the fire, you can do so at some of the links below.

Say Congrats to RantzAir’s New Private Pilots

We’ve had some amazing students at RantzAir!

In addition to watching them take their first solo flight, I love seeing the joy on a student’s face when they pass their final exam and officially become private pilots. I remember the feeling like it was yesterday!

Take a look at a few RantzAir students after passing their final flight exam.

First Solo Flights

One of my greatest joys as a flight instructor is to see my students’ reactions after they take their first solo flight. The radios, the flight controls … they are all under the pilot’s control. It can be scary and exhilarating, all at the same time.

That’s why I love this video from one pilot’s first solo. Her expressions at :58 and 5:10 (when she says “perfect”) are why I do what I do.

Check out some photos I took after RantzAir students completed their first solo flight. Maybe you’ll be next!
