Big thanks to all the great instructors who had helped Dr. Yang throughout his training. Just like any other 14DAYPILOT’s students, our great instructors had prepared him well in Jakarta, Indonesia with the POES (Pass Oral Exam System).

Throughout Dr. Yang’s checkride, he was checked by two FAA Designated Pilot Examiner; Capt Mark Nathan Boss for his oral exam and Capt Dennis Gregory Magdaleno for his Flight Portion.
