Comment:My first solo was great. I was not expecting to fly solo that day but Josh said i was ready, off I went. It was a routine circuit at the London airport, but i came in a little fast, bounced a few times, and exited the run way! The best part was when tower congratulated me on my first solo, I have been hooked on flying ever since.

Comment:My first solo is a flight that I will never forget. It was the beginning of so many things. It was a thrilling flight. And a great feeling of accomplishment that came along with that. The realization hit me that I was the only one in the plane and the only one flying it. It’s an absolutely freeing moment.

Comment: My first solo flight was done in the afternoon on October 11, 2016. It was a beautiful VFR day. After a few circuits with my instructor, he told me to ask for a full stop. As we were taxiing back to the ramp, he informed me that I was going to go solo for the first time. Although he did tell me the possibility of going solo during this flight, I did not really think it was that soon, so I was surprised and excited. He got off the aircraft, and for the very first time, I started the aircraft, contacted ground controller and taxied on my own. It was extremely exciting, at the same time, a little bit unusual to have nobody on the right side. When I actually landed after the last circuit, a moment of strange feeling arise within me – I wished that flight could last longer. Although it was fulfilled with excitement, the word, safety, was always in my mind, and I believe that it will always be as long as I am in front of the controls! Flying gives me a brand new world to explore and enjoy. For every single moment that I spend in the air, I would be the happiest person in the world!
