Birthdays never go unnoticed at HPA. Anyone who has been here for a student’s birthday can surely attest to that. Recently, we had two new HPA family members here to celebrate their birthdays with us.
First up for celebrations was Michael Kirby, a B737-300 Type Rating student. We surprised him with cupcakes during a Monday pizza lunch. His blew out his candles and we can only assume (never tell a wish) that he got what he wanted because he left us a few days later with a new type rating and a brand new hat.
Next up on the list was Michael LaGuardia. He was surprised during his dispatch class with cake, a card, and singing (sorry about the singing)! Michael is also the proud new owner of a hat. He passed his dispatch exam and is working for Orange Air out of Virginia! Happy Birthday guys! Come back to celebrate with us next year.
