    Yesterday Kel Doyle of Chiltern Victoria passed his Flight test and gained the status of Pilot. Kel had a grueling theory test before taking to the air for his flight test. One of Kel’s favorite answers to questions about what is on a ERCLOW chart is “LOTS of information”. Kel had a very good flight test with thunder storms in the distance and emergency landings and many other in-flight emergencies happening. I think Kel must have thought he had the most unreliable aircraft in the world. At the end of Kel’s flight test he had passed and was issued with his wings. He now has a licence to learn. Well done Kel! Jenny Doyle has been learning to fly as well,  and she is hot on the heals of her husband Kel.
