Friday photo: Richard Pember private pilot checkride

The moment: Private pilot checkride

The pilot: Richard Pember (right)

The place: Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport (KJVL), Janesville, WI

The aircraft: C172S

The memory: I’ve wanted to fly since I was a little boy, but a career, family and starting my own business delayed it until my late 40’s.  Thanks to a handful of flight instructors and Elevation Air in Janesville I finally did it and it’s every bit as cool as I always thought it would be!
