On August 7, the Flying Club’s own Stan Blair “slipped the surly bonds of earth” and completed his first solo on his journey towards his Private Pilot License. Stan writes, “I felt some apprehension backtracking when I looked over and the right seat was empty. However once rolling I concentrated on the skills I learned from Brian, Dave and Peter. After a complete circuit and landing it was a great feeling of accomplishment. Thanks Brian, Dave and Peter for your help.”
The Club and the Flight Training Unit send our congratulations to Stan on a job well done!
