October 10th, 2006: My First Solo Flight

I completed my first solo today!

Place: Dutchess County Airport - KPOU (
Aircraft: N6379M (Cessna 152)
Time: About 3:30pm local.

*The solo consisted of 3 circuits around the traffic pattern. I made two nice landings the first two times, and put her down rather hard the third time. Oh well though, they can't all be perfect, lol. The weather was gorgeous, couldn't have asked for better conditions.
*Also, Runway 33 was in use today. Up until today I had only used 24-6, the main runway. So it was a little nerver-wrecking being my first time on the shorter 33-15 strip!

I am now well on my way to having my private pilot license, which I should be getting somewhere around Christmas/New Years.

Here are two pics:

I wondered where you went

Yes, I have been quite inactive for the past month or so and I appologize. But as you can see, I have been extremely busy with school and such. I will probably continue the streak of quietness for a little while, with sporadic posts here and there, but as I said, I am a full-time college student, a student pilot, and I work 18 hours a week. It's quite an adjustment from summer!

Anywho, thanks for the compliments guys, Cheers!
