Bill Fithian was the first student to earn the "Private Pilot Certificate" on Thanksgiving day, at the Pocono Mountains Flying Club. He is now licensed to carry passengers.

Fithian's first flight carrying a passenger was just two days later where he took his son flying over their home. The club located on the field at Pocono Mountains Municipal Airport has 17 members, most of whom are on the route to the Private Pilot Certificate. 

Anyone interested in details about the club can contact Paul Houle at 570-350-0799 or
