    Default First solo!

    Beautiful day at BCV! My instructor and I went up and we did four touch-n-go's then he had me stop and he got out.. It was awesome, great feeling being PIC. I took off and stayed in the pattern for four touch-n-go's... All good landings. What a great experience.

    Congrats! I was up today too. I'm pre-solo myself, but today was just a ride along in a PA11 out to Inner Lake George and back to Cottonwood lake. Beautiful day to be in the air.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.

    Too bad you are not a little closer to my area. I have been doing night flying training for the past few weeks for folks who need night hours in a good stable platform. One 3 hour cross country dual, with a bunch of landings, takes care of the night requirements.

    Last night's flight had some cool northern lights activity...

    Congrats! Denny wore me out on night landings! It's is worth getting that night requirement behind you! All these different requirements will make you a better pilot because of the different situations you will get into.....and that's what we call experience! Denny and I have had lots ' experiences' that make us smarter pilots. Keep going, have fun, and never quit learning. 25 lisc years and 13,000+ hours and I try to learn something every time I fly!
