Ryan Weir submitted the following photo and note: “My 18-year-old Abbie Weir is now a third generation pilot who soloed on Christmas Eve. I was her instructor and I couldn’t be prouder. Looking on was her grandfather Dale Weir, who is also a pilot, along with several friends and family.”
“I have been waiting all my life for this day. I hope she can join me someday in the flight deck of a Southwest 737. Words can’t describe this special Christmas present for us all. Congratulations Abbie.”
