And here we go!

Ok, I’m encouraged that what I was thinking and what you guys are telling me is the same!

Hey everyone!

I finally was able to do my first solo this morning! What an adrenaline rush! Took a lot of patience cause of the weather, and overcame a little adversity to nail my first solo and I’m stoked to have finally done it!

It’s kind of crazy too that looking back on it when I got home, not once during the flight was I thinking “what am I doing?” Or not once did it make me nervous to be on my own! I think it just proves the training works and has been ingrained in me. Honestly, didn’t even think to myself I was by myself until I had a second on downwind to notice the empty seat next to me.

Can’t wait to do it again!

Mat,

Congrats on the Solo! The first time in the plane always feels different, it’s like you’re a person lighter :wink: .

Mat,

Congrats! Great pictures as well. I still have my solo shirt tail. It’s cool to frame down the road.
Next up, solo cross country. Keep us updated. That was my favorite solo experience.

Exciting day for you, Mat! That really is a great photo! I wish I could say that I was as cool, calm, and collected as you on my first solo :wink:
