UND Hockey Team Takes Flight: Pilot Shares Important Message from Control Tower

On Wednesday afternoon, as the UND hockey team’s charter airplane departed from Grand Forks International Airport, the pilot’s voice crackled through the intercom. All eyes turned to Louis Jamernik V, the commercial aviation major, as the pilot announced an important message from the control tower.

The team was on their way to Maryland Heights, Missouri, for their next game. But for Jamernik, this flight was more than just a routine trip. As a student in the commercial aviation program, he was used to being in the air. But today, he had the added pressure of being the center of attention on the plane.

As the pilot’s voice filled the cabin, Jamernik couldn’t help but feel a surge of pride. He had worked hard to get to this point, and now he was being recognized by the control tower.

The message from the tower was brief, but it meant a lot to Jamernik and his fellow passengers. It was a reminder of the importance of their journey and the responsibility that came with it.

As the plane continued on its course, Jamernik couldn’t help but reflect on his passion for aviation and the opportunities it had brought him. And as the team landed in Maryland Heights, he knew that this flight would be one he would never forget.
