They are shown in the photos being congratulated by their DPE, Dan Tannas. Also, they are shaking hands with each other and agreeing that this was not as bad as they had expected. Both passed with flying colors.

Congratulations Mark Sorg

On September 13, 2012, Mark Sorg completed his parctical test with DPE Dan Tannas and earned his PP Glider rating.
Also shown in the pictures is Dan pinning on his glider wings. Rick Hanson, standing nearby, has donated these wings for all CISS members earning a glider rating. Thanks, Rick.
Anyone working on a rating may be pleased to hear that work is underway to have Dan Tannas approved by the FAA to give glider checkrides in the Indianapolis District which will eliminate some of the red tape we have been experiencing in setting up the practical tests.
