Derk hits 900 flight hours with the 440th!

Congrats to Derk who elegantly demonstrated that we all need to get out and stretch our legs more by breaking through 900 flight hours the other night! Seriously, thank you Derk - the Wing wouldn't be the same without you! :)

Thanks. I'm fortunate to have the time to put in to it, but more so to have a great bunch of guys to fly with for fun entertainment.

Only 9100 more hours and he can be considered a master according to Malcom Gladwell! Always a good time flying with Derk!

Very impressive indeed! Congrats on the huge accomplishment! Even in my short time with the wing, it's clear how invaluable your experience is for everyone.

Congratulations! 900 hours; I still remember when I joined it was around 200+. I already feel I am flying a lot but you really are living inside Falcon BMS when I look at these hours. It doesn't even capture the countless hours you and other IPs spend during briefings and helping others!

Thanks for all the help and feedback!
