Hi Jack

Thank you for your contribution to the blog.

It was a special pleasure for me to be able to send you on your first solo, when you were here for your holidays.

My first solo was a memorable occasion I still remember it as if it happened just yesterday.

I can conjure up the horror when my instructor told me "ok I am getting out now and you can go and do it alone".

My heart had palpitations, my legs went to jelly and the thought constantly running through my head was "I have to get this plane down safely by myself". Of course I managed it and the rest is history.

I do believe that my first solo was much more exciting and memorable than passing my PPL !!
