ULM Checkrides in June 2018

June 28th, 2018 is the day some pilots will remember forever.

3 new pilots received their wings after undertaking the official AeCI (Aeroclub d'Italia) ULM checkride in Masera. Moreover, 5 recently licensed pilots obtained the passenger-rating, that is clearance to fly carrying passengers on ULM aircraft.

The previous days and weeks had seen a few first-solo flights.

All of them passed the checkride! The Designated Examiner, Captain Paolo Germigniani from Caiolo, congratulated all of them, all the while giving a bit of wise advice, remembering that the occasion mainly marks a starting point for them, in an activity that leaves very little room for error and requires a continuous discipline.

The same evening, a nice and relaxing BBQ at the field let everybody enjoy some R&R after the day's intense activity.

New ULM pilots:

  • Tommaso Bina
  • Simone Mhammed
  • Paolo Zanghieri

Passenger-carrying ratings: 

  • Oscar Bonetti
  • Stefano Ceccon
  • Riccardo Mezzetti
  • Stefano Onesto
  • Flavio Tartaglione

We wish to congratulate all of them, and thank Instructors Fredy Ramponi and Paolo Cantani. Clear skies and tailwinds, guys!
