First Solo!

I DID IT!

After months of hard work I completed my first solo flight yesterday! It was an amazing experience being up alone without my instructor. I set up a GoPro to capture the flight and the cockpit audio and threw together a short minute-long edit which you can find here.

Special thanks to all the pilots/controllers and everybody else on here who have supported my flight training and shared some advice along the way. Now time to start cross countries!
