I'd like to announce to everyone that Schweiker's own C/Captain Nicholas Birbilis has achieved his FAA license as a Private Pilot. Congratulations on the achievement, finished just days before his departure for his appointment to the United States Merchant Marine Academy. An auspicious start to his ambition for a career in aviation!
Unfortunately, I will not be around to congratulate in person, but please join me in wishing him well and hopefully we'll see him for one of his breaks from school this winter.
Congratulations and Good Luck, Cadet Birbilis!
