I graduated high school today! Thanks to all of my friends, family, and teachers that made the past few years incredible.

So what’s next? Well next year I’m headed to the University of North Dakota’s Aerospace School to be an aviation student in the class of 2019. But first, there are a few things I have going on over the summer. With Boldmethod growing and reaching more and more pilots around the world every day, there’s a lot of work to do!


Here are a few things I have planned for the summer:

  • Working on-site with Boldmethod in Boulder (early to mid June)
  • UND Orientation (mid June)
  • Alabama flying with Rod Kellogg (late June)
  • Possible trip ferrying a Grumman Widgeon from Alabama to Victoria, Canada (with Rod Kellogg – mid July)
  • Full week at Oshkosh AirVenture with Boldmethod (late July – send me an email if you want to meet up there)
  • A mystery vacation with the family (they haven’t told me where yet!)
  • Packing for college
  • Day 1 at UND is August 24th


I can’t wait to get started!

    Swayne, congrats on graduating. Getting a pilot’s license is KINDA cooler though- you already have that on in the bag.

    I’ll be at OSH15 as well and would love to meetup. Let’s plan on it for sure!

    Congratulations Swayne!! A huge hurdle behind and a fun life ahead. But it’s all been fun. I’m trying to get to OSH this year, but week of finals so not sure. If I make it, I will come and find you!! A great summer is planned and then the work will begin.
    A huge congratulations hug from Seattle!

      Thanks, Karlene! I’m so excited to see what comes next. I hope we’ll meet up at OSH if you’re there. I also might be in the Seattle area over the summer – I’ll shoot you an email.
