Today was my first time flying in a Cessna 172. It was a free flight offered by the Mildura Aero Club.
This was by far one of the coolest things I have done!
Here are some pictures from my awesome experience.

@Lachy… MaxSez: One of the better Topic’s I’ve read in months. First person firsts make my day! Thanks for shareing! Regards
(Here’s a first flight memento, from the Guys & Gals at IF’s Forum;
She’s a fun little plane isn’t she? I bet it inspires your love for GA now. Wait til your first solo that’s a rush! Then your solo cross country. Landing at an un firmilar airport, is a bit nerve wracking at first. Never be afraid of the go around that’s for sure.
Great pictures! I remember my first 172 flight. It is an experience like no other, glad you enjoyed it like I did on mine!
She sure is. Thanks Brandon!
Cheers Max! Appreciate it.
Thank you Kevin. Looking forward :).
Congrats Lachy! I’d love to be up there soon too.
I’m glad to hear you had a nice flight!

The 172 is real nice to fly. I’m sure you had a great time!

Flying in Cessna 172 seems really fun! I hope I can have a chance to fly on this aircraft someday
Anyway, Awesome Landing + Awesome Topic, Lachy ❤😊
Cheers George! Appreciate it :)

Yeah I know right! And yes it was awesome!
