Mr. Vinay Patel recently got his Instrument rating on the Diamond DA40 aircraft. Going from flying visually across the North island as a Private Pilot to flying above and among the clouds has been very exciting for Vinay. The diamond DA40 has a state of the art G1000 panel which gave Vinay a modern day training experience. Vinay’s next challenge is the Commercial Pilot Licence which he hopes to acquire before Christmas so that he can begin to train as an instructor early next year.
