So, today I soloed for the first time. I was flying the rental plane, a Cessna 172. My instructor and I had talked this morning about soloing, and he told me I would solo today. So, I called my girlfriend and had her rush to the airport so she could video! My instructor and I did 4 nice landings, and then he hopped out! I taxied to RWY 24, did the run-up, and taxied on to the runway alone for the very first time! It didn't hit me that I was alone until right after I turned downwind and I looked over to an empty seat! What a feeling!:nana2: My first landing was pretty good, but I should have held it off a bit longer. My second and third landings were picture perfect! I am now signed off to fly alone! My solo came at 11.5 hours of flight time and lasted for an unforgettable .7 hours!
