First solo – Chan



Hats off to my student Chan who made his first solo this past Sunday. I started teaching Chan in October last year. We had seven lessons taking us up to the new year, then for various reasons he took a break, which was involuntarily extended until we started flying again after the COVID hiatus. Four more lessons this month and he was ready for solo, at 14.2 hours.

On his first circuit Chan decided he didn’t like the way the landing was set up, so he wisely went around for a second attempt which worked much better. That was a really good example of pilot decision making. I’m looking forward to getting him to PPL standard as efficiently and effectively as possible.

If you really really enjoyed this post (or you hated it so much you loved railing against it) leave your email address here and I’ll send you a note when I write the next one so you can have more fun.
