Soaring Accomplishment: Senior Evan Illg Takes Flight
“A mile of highway will take you a mile. A mile of runway will take you anywhere.”
For Senior Evan Illg, this quote contains words to live by. With a passion for aviation and the calm demeanor and courage to fly, Evan has begun the process of completing flight school to acquire his pilot license as a senior in high school.
Ever since he can remember, he has wanted to fly. As a little kid, Evan looked up to his father and uncle who are both pilots. Evan’s father, David Illg, is a private pilot and primarily flies a seaplane which seats just a few passengers and has the capability to land on water. Evan’s uncle, Walter Illg, is a retired cargo pilot who flew for DHL for several years.
