My first real life solo

My first solo is on the 14th my birthday. I am flying a 172. I can't wait just the fact that I am going to fly myself for once a bit nerve racking but this sure is very exciting. What was it like when you did your first solo?

not sure yet lol. I need 1 more ground lessons to get there. Funny thing is I been at this for around 2 years now cause I have to pay for my flight lessons and well the cost around 150 160 an hour for flying and 150 for 2 hours of ground lessons. But it feels good knowing I paid for all of it by my self so once I do get my lisence I will feel good about myself.

Thanks all I don't know I guess it like getting married so to speak even though I've never gotten married. But one day those who stand on the ground wishing to be flying will indeed do so. Good luck to everyone and have a safe flight Cheers! Cheers!

According to my instructors I should have been given my first solo a long time back...but I hope it's quite soon. Btw I have 35 hours on the C172.

Good luck with your solo, and most importantly enjoy it!

I did my PPL in the C-152. I did a half hour lesson practicing one or two circuits then the instructor signed me off for first solo. On your first solo you dont do much so that you are not thrown in at the deep end. Just have confidence in yourself, it is not as scary as what it may seem!

Wait until you do your solo-nav!

Once again good luck and enjoy yourself!
