First Solo

Recommended Posts

I just soloed for the first time today. :biggrin: Four landings at the airport. It was kind of different, not having an instructor at all.

Congrats!! Keep going with it. :clapping:

 

I remember my first solo. Butterflies all the way to the runway, and a good runup to make sure all was well. Then I had to get on with it. Pompano Towar cleared me for takeoff, and I taxied out onto the active. As I pushed the throttle forward the butterflies went away :good: .

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

 

Your first solo will always be with you no matter how many orbital missions you eventually make. A fantastic milestone!

 

Is your shirt tacked up on the instructor's wall or do they still do that?

Funny thing about the shirt. I didn't let them cut my shirt up cause my mom just bought it, so I promised I'd give them another shirt. LOL.

Yuba County

 

I know exactly where that field is! I used to fly out of Beale AFB from 1999-2001, so I know that area pretty well. In fact, they've had airshows there, haven't they?

 

EDIT: They have had airshows there...I did a flyby sometime while I was there at Beale....

 

Anyway, congrats again!

Way to go!!!

You will never think about flying and aircraft the same as you used to.

It will bring a whole new world into your FltSims.

I had mine over 30 years ago and I still remember most of it. You will never forget it.

NAS Saufley Fld,near Pensacola,Fla. had a lot of shirttails hanging on the walls.

 

Well Done,and don't forget to"Check Your Six".
