First Solo!!!

Many congratulations to our student Martin who flew his first solo circuit today!

Taking advantage of a beautiful day for flying, Martin first flew a few circuits with his instructor Laurance in our Piper Warrior, G-CEZI. After demonstrating three faultless landings, it was time for Laurance to exit the cockpit and for Martin to fly alone for the first time.

Martin had been waiting several weeks for the good weather to match his own availability and in fact, he took the afternoon off today to achieve this important milestone in his training. While Martin took his first solo flight, parents were proudly watching from the club. A beaming Martin was delighted afterwards and agreed that this was a great way to finish the week.

Congratulations Captain!
