By Marc Bretz, EAA 1071835

Today, I reached the first big milestone in my flight career! I earned my private pilot certificate through ATP Flight School at Glendale Airport (KGEU) in Glendale, Arizona. Ever since I was a little kid, I always remembered my mom or dad taking me to the airport to watch airplanes, air shows, etc. I’m excited to be on the journey and even more excited to call myself an EAA member!

Well done, Marc — all of us at EAA send our congratulations!
