Donna and DeWitt Barker are both transition students under the tutelage of Dave Galloway… Today DeWitt solo’d in the Grob 103 and Donna had the pleasure of a 500’ rope break… compliments of Dave. 

It was a great day for flying today.  We also had pancakes and fixin’s earlier in the morning… First Saturday of the Month and all that.

DeWitt did a great job on his first solo flight and Donna also did a great job on her unannounced cable break… although the “chirp” she made when it happened we think was heard all the way down at the field.  She said it was pretty loud…
