Garrek Dlug earns pilot's wings
March 23, 2017
Garrek Dlug, 17, is Bonners Ferry’s newest private pilot. Garrek started training for his license last year through an Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Ground School Scholarship.

After successfully completing his ground school course at Northern Air, Inc. and passing the FAA exam, Garrek was awarded a flight training scholarship, enabling him to continue his training with a flight instructor.

On March 16, 2017, Garrek completed his check ride and earned his private pilot license.

Garrek plans to graduate from high school this spring, and continue his studies, planning to become a search-and-rescue pilot, and an electrician.

Congratulations on your accomplishment, Garrek!
