2012 Scholorship goes to Dan Kiely

Scholarship Recipient
Hi Melanie, I hope all is well. I just wanted to pass on the good news that with the help of the Wings of the North and the James Dubay scholarship I earned my private pilot’s license two weeks ago. Despite having my check ride cancelled four times in a row due to weather, we were finally able to take off in clear, albeit slightly windy weather after deicing the plane a few times. I wanted to say thank you again to everyone at Wings of the North for their support and I couldn’t have done it without the help of the James Dubay scholarship. I look forward to continue flying (and learning) at FCM and hope to see you around the airfield! Many thanks and happy New Year! Dan…
