Kaitlyn is Private Pilot!!
Have you ever flown a plane wearing a pair of 5-inch heels? Well, Kaitlyn Lera has and as of today, she is officially a Private Pilot!
Not only did she solo less than a month ago, this incredible aviatrix has been flying and doing ground lessons upwards of 4 days a week. Today, her hard work paid off! This local realtor drives from Minden to complete her lessons, and is always dressed to impress, and many times, is seen preflighting as the best dressed person on the ramp. But, not afraid of some oil or avgas. Avgas and jet exhaust, her new signature scent. Kaitlyn is super dedicated, enthusiastic, and passionate about aviation, and it shows! As she moves on to the next leg of her journey, continuing her flight training in Florida, we wish her the best and can’t wait to see how her career takes off!
Congratulations to Kaitlyn, and her CFI Ethan Chinowsky!

Cody is a Sea Plane pilot!
CFI/CFII Cody Lucero, one of our Sierra Battle Born charter members, is now a Sea Plane pilot!! No, the usual C172s he flies and instructs in are not buoyant, but Fly Truckee Tahoe float planes are. Cody worked with Kevin, the Sea Plane CFI, for this cool rating. Awesome job!

Kaitlyn Lera soloed!!
House it going everyone?! Local star realtor and Women in Aviation, Sierra Battle Born Chapter's best dressed flyer, Kaitlyn Lera, is on cloud nine this morning because she is officially a soloed pilot! After a couple of successful practice landings, Kaitlyn kicked out her instructor and buttered N37JA onto runway 8 at KRTS! But KRTS obviously wasn’t enough, so with some extra time, Kaitlyn kicked out her instructor, yet again (we don’t blame her), and did another beautiful lap back at KRNO. With her home in Minden, Kaitlyn makes the impressive trek up to Reno to pursue her flight training, and with her success so far, Kaitlyn has interests in potentially making a career within the field! There’s so much to love about Kaitlyn, especially her fashion sense, and here is another impressive accomplishment to add to the list! Congratulations to Kaitlyn on this awesome accomplishment!
