San Juan Pilots Earn Gold at FlightSafety

While many SJPA members were seeking warmer climes this past winter, an intrepid trio of local aviators completed their annual journey to frigid Kansas to train at the FlightSafety International Learning Center in Wichita. Like the characters of Oz, Jim Gruneisen, Jackie Hamilton, and Bob Jamieson were off to see the Wizard of aviation safety where he told them the best safety device in any aircraft is a well trained pilot. FlightSafety is the world’s premier professional aviation training company and operates the world’s largest fleet of advanced full motion flight simulators. Although there’s no place like the San Juan’s, perhaps the only reason to travel to Kansas in the middle of winter would be the experience of training in a $25 million dollar simulator. It turns out our local trio are the only pilots from Washington State that regularly train at the Wichita center, and this time the Wizard awarded them the FlightSafety International Gold Standard signifying they were the best of the best. Congratulations to Jim, Jackie, and Bob.
