First Solo!

Hi everyone,

Today was the day I got to venture into the skies by myself! I’ve been going through training for my PPL for some time now, and finally soloed! It’s an indescribable feeling getting the privilege to fly by yourself. I was a bit nervous, but that all dissipated when I took off. I did three takeoffs and three landings. I wish anyone who’s going after their PPL the best of luck!

Mine was at 9 hours, if you hadn’t ‘solo’ed’ by 12 then you were removed from the course!

He probably had to wait to turn 16.

The mighty beast in all it’s glory!

Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone! It’s definitely a milestone, but I’ve got a long way to go. Now on to tackling cross countries and the planning that goes into it.
