A Day I'll Always Remember

Yesterday I flew a plane solo for the very first time.  It was an incredible experience, and be assured that I have plenty to say about it!

Unfortunately, I have to get my butt to work, and I would rather spend a bit of time on the entry rather than just bash something out for you guys.  Expect it some time between 2am tonight when I get off work, and 2pm tomorrow afternoon when I have to go to work again!

In the meantime, HERE is a link to the Ottawa Flying Club blog, where Mike kindly wrote a blog entry for the club's news page - complete with photographs of me in a wet t-shirt!  If that doesn't entice you to follow the link, then I don't know what will! 



  1. Congratulations!!!!!! :) :) :)

    Can't wait to read all about it!!!!

    Woo Hoo!!!!

  3. Congratulations! It only gets better from here.

  4. i remember my fist solo flight, it was an awesome experience. and mine was 22 years ago but i still remember it like it was yesterday. congratulations to you.

  5. Congratulations!!! I can't wait to read about your first solo flight from the pilots seat perspective, that bucket of water sure looks like a good incentive to work hard toward my own solo while its still warm here!
