Solo - no one - zilch - nada - by yourself

It seems like a long journey to solo, you practice and practice and then the day comes where your instructor gets out- gulp- the saying "be careful what you wish for" and all that comes into your thoughts. But hey you do it you throttle up and take off....the feeling is like nothing you can imagine. It is a life long dream that you worked for and now are doing - flying a plane BY YOURSELF! Congratulations.

My Student Ashley did solo this weekend and it was a pleasure to help her attain her goal. As an instructor this is my goal too I. It is a huge sense of accomplishment for me to help someone reach this point in their path to be a licensed pilot.
