Congratulations to Senior Wood Student, Robert Meditz

December 11th, 2014

Robert had a love of planes from a very young age.  He always wanted to be a pilot and at age 14 he took his first flight lesson.  On his 16th birthday Robert took his first step toward his dream by flying the plane solo.  On October 5th of this year he realized his dream by obtaining his private pilot license.  Over the four years of training Robert has logged over 100 hours of flight time.  In order to obtain your pilot’s license you need at least 40 hours of flight time and be 17 years of age.  Of that 40 hours, 10 hours has to be solo time with 5 of that being what is considered “cross country time.”  Cross country time is flying at least 50 miles from your home airport, which for Robert is Doylestown Airport (KDYL).    For Robert’s cross-country flights he did one from Doylestown to Lancaster and back.  For the second he flew from Doylestown to Wilkes Barre, to Lancaster and then back to Doylestown.  Flight training must also include 3 hours of night flying and 3 hours of instrument raining.

In addition to the flight training Robert had to pass a written test, an oral interview and a practical test.  The oral interview and practical exam were on the 5th and Robert had to fly to Queen City Airport (just below Allentown International Airport) to take them.  The two tests took approximately 3 hours to complete.

Over Robert’s 4 years of flying he has flown to many airports from Cape May, to Lancaster, to Wilkes Barre.  He had the honor of taking a flight lesson in the Outer Banks where Robert landed at First Flight Field in Kitty Hawk North Carolina, where the Wright Brothers did their famous first flight.

Robert has flown 4 different planes over his flight traing (Cessna 172, Piper Archer, Piper Warrior) but, the one that he has done the majority of his training on, and took his test in, is the Diamond DA-20C1.

Robert plans on attending college for a degree in “Professional Pilot” and would like to eventually fly for a major airline.
