Congratulations! Jeff Lemmenes, Private Pilot ASEL Instrument Airplane.
Stevens Point Municipal Airport (KSTE): Jeff Lemmenes, a certificated pilot of Single-Engine Land airplanes, completed instrument flight training with Wanda Zuege, 2010 Flight Instructor Of The Year/Wisconsin. As a Private Pilot, Jeff was authorized to fly passengers for pleasure or personal business under Visual Flight Rules in Visual Meteorological Conditions (VMC); to fly in weather where the visibility would be 3 miles or greater in controlled airspace. On Wednesday, September 25, 2013, Lemmenes demonstrated mastery of the aircraft for each instrument TASK performed during the Instrument Practical Test flight with Designated Pilot Examiner, Harold “Duffy” Gaier of the Marshfield Municipal Airport. Under the authority of FAR Part 61.57 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Jeff Lemmenes is now eligible to fly by reference to instruments under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC). Known as blind flying, the instrument rating is an aviation flight category that describes flying in weather conditions with less than 3 statute miles of visibility in controlled airspace.
NOV 2011: Jeff Lemmenes attended Am I High Aviation, LLC’s weekend ground school course and passed the Instrument Knowledge Test. Jeff wrote: ”I took the test on Monday and answered 10 incorrectly (83%). It took me a little over 2 hours to complete the test including going back to review answers. I completed both practice tests in about an hour and answered 5 incorrectly both times. I believe there were 5 GPS or GPS approach questions and I answered 2 of those incorrectly. There were also a couple of questions regarding ice. I think I answered both of those correctly. I did answer the question regarding flight time to be filled in on a flight plan incorrectly. The three choices were 1 hours 15 minutes (which I knew to be incorrect), 1 hour and 20 minutes (which is what I answered incorrectly), and 1 hour and 25 minutes. Thank you for the ground school. Now the real work begins!” Jeff Lemmenes, WI
