New Pilot Spotlight: Bill Guyette

Bill Guyette started his flying journey in 1989 in western Kentucky. A few of his coworkers at the time were private pilots and encouraged him to begin flying lessons.

The odds were not in his favor at first, as he ran into a few problems along the way – having to drive a long way from a rural area to an airport for flight instruction, a bicycle accident on the way to a training, and presidential Temporary Flight Restrictions preventing him from flying during an important training.

In June 2020 he was able to complete his check ride and now holds a Private Pilot Certificate. He enjoys flying as a hobby and has plans to possibly obtain his instrument rating at a later date.

Congratulations! We are glad to have you as part of our aviation community!
