Congratulations to the 1st Soloist for the day, Student Pilot Jan Michael Reyes Sigaya, 32 years old resident of AFPOVAI, Taguig City and a product of Asia Pacific College, AB Multi-Media Arts. The 1st Soloist for the day is by the way the 4th member of the 19 strong Batch Hotel 2018 who successfully achieved the highlight of his early flying career, the unforgettable 1st Solo Flight. The subject student pilot on board RP-C1300 was confidently released for solo by Capt Elcid Tolentino this morning on or about 0940H, November 24, 2018 in just 11.4 flying hours, a very outstanding feat indeed. Incidentally, the brand new 1st Soloist is one of the lucky beneficiaries of ACDI Multi-Purpose Cooperative’s Scholarship Program for Pilot Training this year. Likewise, the good looking Jan Michael fondly called Rion by close friends, is the son of MGen Ming Sigaya AFP (Ret), a former seasoned fighter pilot of the 5th Fighter Wing, PAF where obviously the flying skills and genes must have originated. Welcome to the elite club of the few, young and daring flightless eaglets cleared for safe takeoff to explore and conquer the infinite vastness of the horizon and clear blue skies of San Fernando Airport, La Union, the home sanctuary and Eagles’ Nest of LEIAAI’s young aviators. Apparently, with this early success, Rion may now draft a clear flight plan, focus intensely and work very hard in his personal quest for a very bright future in the Airline Industry where most of Leading Edge’s graduates are now flying with pride and honor!
Once again, congratulations to our 1st Soloist for the day as well as to the proud and very supportive parents! Happy Flying and have Safe Flight always! Cheers & God bless!✈✈✈✈✈✈✈✈✈✈✈✈✈✈
