A big yaaahoooo for Dominic, who flew an airplane by himself at Reid-Hillview airport yesterday under the watchful eye of Instructor Jason. It’s an amazing thing to take off by yourself in an airplane and suddenly realize it is all on you to get back on the ground safely. There is no instructor there to help you make a good landing, just your hours of training and their voice in your head telling you “stay on centerline, flare gently, just a little more back pressure, good!” And the success of such a flight is evident on Dominic’s face next to N915L right after his first solo flight. Nicely done!
