First Solo!

HUGE congratulations to our student Mark who today achieved his first solo!

Mark is an experienced glider pilot and instructor, but is now in the process of making the transition to powered aircraft and is working towards his LAPL licence. 

Mark flew his first solo in C152 G-BOLV late in the afternoon after practicing a few circuits on Rwy 08L with instructor Laurance beforehand. The weather was gloomy but the winds were light for the big event. 

Well done Mark, a great achievement!
