Alyssa Abbey passed her check ride!!

On April 26, 2019, Alyssa Abbey passed her check ride!!

“Hi everyone! Yesterday I passed my check ride and at last I’m a qualified private pilot. I feel so relieved and happy, and I’d recommend to anyone looking for a DPE to travel to Lincoln and go with Ashley Snider. She really put me at ease.  AND – anyone looking for someone to fly right seat/be 2nd pair of eyes/navigator for $100 hamburgers or further afield – I’m very willing :)
