The first solo – a red letter day in the life of a pilot. You take to the skies with no pesky instructor in the right seat and a stomach full of butterflies. For most of us, that event is permanently etched in our memory. We can remember the airplane, hear the radio calls, and feel the relief and excitement when it was over.
So this month we want to know what year you completed your first solo, and what the airplane was. Whether it was two weeks ago or two decades ago, it’s worth celebrating so add a comment below.
