First Solo!!!

Congratulations to our student Jon, who successfully flew his first solo circuit today!

Jon has always wanted to learn to fly and recently commenced his training with us. Fitting his flight training around work, Jon has amassed around 10 hours so far. 

Jon flies our Cessna 152s and today was in G-BOYL for the big event. He flew a few circuits with instructor Laurance on Redhill's runway 26L. However it wasn't long before Laurance announced that he would like to be dropped off at the ATC Tower so that Jon could fly the next circuit alone!

The conditions were great - it was a nice calm evening and everything went smoothly. Jon will now do some solo circuit consolidation before moving onto his next phase of training.

Congratulations Captain!
