Gets in Trouble
The Osage City Police was called out by the FAA to the
Osage City Airport on Feb. 14th. Why? To check on
K-State student and Private Pilot Nate Hinkel, who flew a club plane
to Osage so he could make a skydive. One problem... he forgot
to close his flight plan, so they came looking for him!
Although we had a good laugh at his expense, it was encouraging to
see how the system works to protect pilots and help with search and
rescue. Nate, you knew we couldn't let you live this one down!
