A huge congratulations to Caroline Schmid for passing her check-ride and becoming a private pilot! Caroline is a senior at Sacred Heart Academy, is a member of the Madrigals and loves to travel. She was introduced to flying by her mom, who is a UPS pilot. She has studied diligently and dedicated long hours to progress in her training. “If flying were easy, everyone would do it,” Caroline says. She offered some advice for student pilots: “You’ll get it, but not overnight. Immerse yourself in aviation. Spend time hanging out at the airport. Talk to other pilots and listen to their advice. We’ve all been there.” We’re super proud of you, Caroline. Blue skies!
