First Solo Today!!!

Congratulations to Georg, our latest Austrian student who flew his first solo today!

Georg is a meteorologist, but looks into long term weather trends rather than day-to-day weather. This evening's weather proved to be calm for the "big event", albeit rather grey.

Before flying solo for the first time, Georg flew with instructor Laurance to practice his circuits. Tonight the runway in use was Rwy 08R - which Georg had not flown off before.

He flew Cessna 152 G-BOYL into which he only just fits - as can be seen from the photo below, George is well over 6ft tall!

Congratulations Captain!
