Cadet Chief Master Sgt. Chase Britton became Civil Air Patrol’s newest pilot June 13 after passing his FAA check ride with flying colors.
The event took place at Santa Fe Municipal Airport. Britton used a Civil Air Patrol Cessna 172 for both his training as well as the check ride. His training was provided by CAP instructors SMSgt. Chuck Grosvenor and Lt. Col. Rick Thomas.
Los Alamos squadron commander Maj. Annette Peters congratulated Britton on his achievement.
“We are all very proud of you,” she said in an e-mail to Britton.
