First Solo!!!

Congratulations to our student Aidan, who flew solo for the first time today!

Flying Cessna 152 G-BOYL, this was Aidan's 12th flight. Instructor Mark Jeffries observed Aidan flying several practice circuits beforehand and then exited the aircraft so that Aidan go up alone! 

Aidan came back from his 20 minute flight to say that he was surprised at how quickly the aircraft got airborne without the instructor with him! He can be seen in the picture stood next to instructor Mark with a beaming smile on his face.This flight brings Aidan's total to 12 hours 30 minutes.

Congratulations Captain!
