Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve made a topic on the forum but here I am once again. I’ve asked this questions to various other people but none of them know the answer. This led me to the IFC to see if any CFIs or just anyone knows the answer to my question.
So here’s the deal,
I want to solo the EXACT day I turn 16. Like I’m talking about the exact day I’m 16. I’ve heard seen people that have done their first solo the day they turned 16 and as of today that is one of my main goals. I know that you need a student pilots certificate to solo and it usually takes around three weeks from the day you apply to the day it arrives to your house for you to receive it. My question is the following: if it takes around three weeks to get your SPC , and some people do their first solo the day they turn 16, does it mean that they applied for it a few weeks before they were 16?? If not, does this mean that you don’t need a SPC for your first solo rather an endorsement from your CFI?? I’d gladly appreciate if someone could answer my question.
