My first solo

Hey guys,

Completed my first solo flight today; took a few photos. Sorry for the potato quality, I had shaky hands with excitement! Plane was a Piper PA38.


Wellington International Airport (NZWN)
Didn’t actually manage to do any touch & gos today, there were a few jets coming through so had to keep holding on the runway or vacate the runway because of wake turbulence.

After takeoff:

Downwind Runway 16:


Potato quality lol. Nice job with your solo! :)

First time in 2 months I’ve been able to get up because of the weather. Windy October is fast approaching too :(
