Pilot Mountain

Originally started flight training in Winston Salem NC. Received my private certificate in 2008. Featured here is the appropriately named Pilot Mountain located a few nautical miles away from KINT where I started my training. Best landmark I could imagine for a pilot-in-training. At 2,421 ft elevation, this mountain was originally named Jomeokee, which means ‘great guide’ or ‘pilot,’ by the Siouan-speaking native Americans (Saura/Cheraw). Visit NC State Parks/Pilot Mountain for more information.
