Some guys can’t keep their feet on the ground.
That includes Daniel Shulte.
The latest private pilot in the Aviation Explorers Post based at Sonoma Skypark Airport earned his pilot’s license on May 10, even before earning his California driver’s license, obtained on June 3.
Shulte is going somewhere, whether by air or land or both. From his first transatlantic flight at 9 months old to a fascination with planes from the age of 2, Shulte has been an airplane … well, kind of an air freak.
Shulte’s parents and older sister have been supportive. As his 12th birthday gift, the family gave him flight lessons.
After relocating several places in the west, the family came to the North Bay and found Sonoma Skypark.
