Our 2021 Pilots Get Their Wings

With a successful 2021 training session at Purdue in the books, Able Flight’s new pilots returned to their homes for a few weeks of down time before traveling to Oshkosh, Wisconsin where they were honored on July 21st during our annual Wings Pinning Ceremony at EAA AirVenture.

Awarded pilot wings were T’angelo Magee, Peyton Wolter, Sheila Xu, Michael Price and David Snypes Jr. who all trained at Purdue. Joining them was Steven Curry, who just days before the ceremony, passed his checkride to earn his Certified Flight Instructor rating.

Special guests included family and friends, flight instructors from Purdue University and Aviation Adventures, Aviation Hall of Fame inductee Patty Wagstaff, Able Flight pilots Jessica Cox and Adam Kisielewski, representatives of sponsors Tempest Aero Group, ForeFlight, Muncie Aviation and Aircraft Spruce, and Federal Air Surgeon Dr. Susan Northrup.
