You'll Never Forget Your First Solo Flight

It's an unforgettable milestone for any pilot, your first solo flight.

At 16, Tyler Thomas wasn't concerned with driving a car, he was ready for the sky! It's a feeling of freedom and responsibility unlike anything else! I remember my first solo, taking off and thinking "Wow, I'm the only person in the world who can land this plane." What do you remember from your first solo flight?

Do you know a student pilot getting ready to solo? Share this with them, we know they'll love it!

It looks like this video was made private by the owner, but you can find another great solo flight video here.
