I did my solo today and I will tell you we went around the pattern two times stopped after taxiing off the runway and did the after landing checklist after the second time my instructor said go to your after landing checklist I did then out of the corner of my eye he was collecting papers I heard the door pop open and the unclicking of a seat belt he then said are you ready I said ye he said go ahead latch the door and fly. I flew by myself around the pattern twice the first landing was terrible but the second was perfect I got a certificate the back end of my shirt was cut off (some initiation thing) and I got a certificate with the incredible feeling that I got and airplane off the ground and back on the ground by myself it was the weirdest thing realizing once I lifted off that the seat next to me was pushed back and unoccupied I was terrified enthusiastic and in pure heaven when this happened boy what a great birthday because I was finally pushed out of the nest and told to fly on my own and sure enough I did. Thank God
