Future SWA Pilot

Adventurer A
Today on my flight, I had the pleasure of meeting passenger Andrew Schiff. Andrew_BrotherAndrew had drawn a picture for the Pilots and attached the following note.  "Dear Southwest Pilots of WN518: Thank you for flying my brother and me to Florida to visit our relatives.  It's been a long time since I've been to Florida.  When I grow up, I want to be a Pilot for the Southwest 737.  I've had two flying lessons out of Farmingdale, NY.  On Friday, I flew a Piper PA 2b-151 Warrior from Farmingdale to Bridgeport, CT.  The Instructor said I flew 98% of the time.  In Bridgeport, we did a few touch and goes and in the middle of the second touch and go, we were on downwind to runway 24 when a Piper was a couple of hundred feet from our left wing.  They were supposed to be behind us, but they passed without clearance from the tower, so my instructor told the tower.  In Florida, my Nana knows somebody who is able to get me into the tower at Boca Raton or Ft. Lauderdale Executive.  I'm really looking forward to that.  Thank you again! Future Southwest Pilot - Andrew P.S.  Happy 35th Birthday SWA!"Andrews_Drawing  Andrew also included his email address for future correspondence.  If you would like to write Andrew some words of encouragement, etc...please post the comments here, and I'll be sure he gets them.
