    Default First Solo

    Finally got my first solo yesterday. I am a bit far in (about 35 hours), but it was great. My CFI is an engineer, so I guess he wanted to make sure I was more than ready before letting me go it alone. I have been kinda "expecting" it for a few lessons now and it finally happened. 3 runs around the patch and 3 great landings in a row. I was stoked..a little nervous, but I think since I had waited so long I didn't get eat up with nerves...just talked through the processes like I would have with him in the right seat and all went smoothly. Onward and Upward. I will see you guys in AK in a few years. Lol.
