Secondly how did you start flying gliders, and how long have you been gliding?
I’ve been Gliding since the first of September 2018 and I started because my Great Grandpa (link to a post about him at the bottom) got me a Virgin Experience for my Birthday. I was a bit anxious to go but when I landed after the 25 min flight, I knew I needed to do this more often… and so I did!
The but you’ve all Been waiting for, the solo
I was expecting to be very nervous about the flight and expected to be nervous when I got up. But the scariest part was being pushed to the runway for the Aerotow.
Once I was on the short ground roll I was perfectly relaxed (to my surprise) and finished the flight after 14 minutes of flight (and one of the best landings I’ve ever done).
Now I know what the most interesting part of IF threads is, the pictures
Congratulations! Hopefully the first of many solos. Flying solo in a glider is truly like nothing else, just you, the plane, and the air whizzing by. I’m excited to see the rest of your adventures! Good luck!
