Perhaps for the first time in LT's aviation history, two LT alumni will be piloting a plane together as captain and first officer. Class of 2011 graduate Frank Nosek will serve as SkyWest Captain, while fellow graduate Matt Quinlan will serve as First Officer.
Frank and Matt both participated in LT's Aviation program. After LT, Frank went to Embry Riddle University and Matt went to the University of North Dakota.
Aviation teacher Dave Root said, "Seeing them pilot a plane together made my day. We have a lot of pilots in the industry flying for the airlines, corporations, and military, but this is the first time I have gotten a picture of two alums flying the line together."
