With a loan from his Father in late 1998, Sebastien was finally able to fulfill his childhood dreams of flight. Two months after becoming a licensed ultralight pilot, he received his Instructors rating. Now rated on 15 different aircraft types, Sebastien also has the following endorsements: Float, Tail dragger, and Mountain check.
