Kevin Crombie, the first of the students training at Purdue to earn his license.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THREE NEW ABLE FLIGHT PILOTS!
Kevin Crombie, Korel Cudmore and Eric Ingram are all newly licensed pilots after completing their training at Purdue University and passing their checkrides. Nearing the completion of his training is SFC Jermaine Strachan.
On May 22, the four Able Flight scholarship recipients arrived at Purdue only to be greeted with a week of weather that didn't allow them to fly. So they concentrated on ground school, and as soon as the weather cleared they began to make up for lost time.
A little over halfway through their nearly five week training all four students passed their FAA knowledge test on the same day. After that, they worked even harder to get back on their demanding flight training schedule, and with the help of their instructors they were able to complete their training.
