Solo flight




Yesterday wasn’t my first solo, but it was my first time going through the whole process on my own: preflighting the plane, fueling, determining my flight plan, flying, etc. I took off towards McMinnville, did three touch-n-goes there, and then flew around some clouds to get back to Twin Oaks.

It was awesome, to say the least. I’m at a neat point in my training now too — I have endorsements to land at Twin Oaks, Aurora, or McMinnville, and am free to fly whenever I’d like (and the weather is good enough). Going forward, I need to complete some cross country work with my instructor, practice maneuvers for my checkride, and pass my written.

Plus, some video:
