That's awesome. He looks very happy with himself.

I bet from the day he first solo'd to sitting at the controls of that 145 must be a mind blowing sense of accomplishment.

My only regret is that his grandfather (my Dad) was not around to see this happen, as he was a fighter pilot during WWII. He passed away a year ago.

So if at some future time you board a Express Jet flight and one of the pilots is a young blond fellow with the first name "Alan", You might be on board with him!!

I just had to share
There is nothing more gratifying than seeing your child/grand child succeed. I am sure that his parents played a major role in his accomplishment.
Congrats to both you

I would give up my job as a peace officer in a heart beat to be a commercial airline pilot. Every kid has a dream. Some are lucky enough to reach them.

I am a very proud dad.....But I take no credit. "Molding" only goes so far. Yes I was very involved in his life. Trying at every turn to give him the opportunity to achieve, yet not keeping him from failure.
You'd be amazed how much we owe our Dad's. Mine Dad is my hero. Hopefully my son feels the same way. Congrats to the both of you!
