At Double M Aviation, we are proud to partner with aviation programs that encourage pilots and their passengers to become more familiar with their aircraft. Earlier this month, we had the honor of hosting our third annual luncheon for the Bonanza & Baron Pilot Training weekend clinic at Lakeland-Linder Airport.
This specifically-tailored program provides pilots of Beechcraft airplanes the opportunity to learn from and fly with Certified Flight Instructors using their own type aircraft, as well as offering amazing Non-Pilot Companion courses to promote the knowledge-base and comfort of frequent flying passengers. This year, we heard from a 77-year old woman who performed her very first aircraft landing during this course! She was thrilled to have this new experience under her belt and highly praised the instructor who assisted her during her flight time.
The Saturday luncheon at the Double M hangar is our way of serving the great people we meet during BPT, hearing more about their experiences one-on-one, and showing them just what makes Lakeland-Linder a great place to land for a weekend getaway. The meal was catered by two local businesses, Patio850, whose food looked as amazing as it tasted, and Drica’s Favorites, whose coffees and fresh baked goods were a big hit!
We love to support the continuing education of pilots and their passengers, as well as showcasing what we do best, quality aircraft maintenance with no excuses. We celebrate another great BPT weekend clinic and look forward to next year!
