3/8/17 UPDATE: We’re delighted to share the news that King Schools’ co-founder John King has received his FAA medical certificate from the FAA. In an email to Plane & Pilot, King wrote that getting his ticket after a years-long battle was a surprise—of the most pleasant variety, we’re certain. The legendary aviation educator got his approved medical in the mail from the FAA earlier this week after having made one last appeal, though he was’t sure if that that was the key to the FAA’s changing course on its decision. We’re guessing he’ll celebrate with his business partner, wife and crewmate Martha King by going flying. Congrats to the Kings on this great news.
