Flight School: Sea Eagle Aviation
Flight Instructor: Paul Tymstra
Comment: I had often heard many other pilots say their first solo flight is one of their most memorable moments in life and I would have to agree with that. I was lucky enough to get to experience it on a perfect summer evening on Prince Edward Island and although I had full intentions of recording a video from the cockpit, I was pretty eager to just get on with it instead of fooling around with cameras and cables. I had to extend a downwind leg and a full circle rate one turn while waiting for some airline traffic. Fortunate enough to have little to no wind, the landing was good enough to have both the airline pilots holding short, as well as the tower operator both offer their congratulations, as apparently, my instructor tipped them off it was my first solo and they were keen to watch. I had a hard time wiping the smile off my face that evening!
