Congratulations to Palmer Timmons (Class of 2018) who won first place in the Sportsman Power division at the International Aerobatic Club National Championships in Salina, Kansas, on October 6. He also earned first-place flight medals for two of his three competition flights.
Timmons, who studies commercial aviation in the aerospace school at the University of North Dakota, flew a Super Decathlon representing the UND aerobatics team.
As Palmer noted in a previous interview for the ConVal alumni web feature: “The concept of becoming a pilot was something that never seemed like a realistic, attainable goal until I was actually getting into flight training. I imagine there are plenty of high school students in the same position as I was. I encourage them to talk to me if they are interested in becoming a professional pilot, or look into local flight schools and book a discovery flight.”
