It’s been a really exciting week around here — we had two student pilots solo on the same day!
First up, Anne. She and my “dad” went up in the morning, and he pronounced her ready to leave the nest (well, that’s not what he said, but it’s the same idea!) She expertly flew the airplane around the west side of Bainbridge Island, and beached it herself at the end of her solo flight. I’m so proud of her!
And, then in the afternoon, my pal Yvette got to go all by herself around Lake Union! She claims that the taxi time to the north end of the lake was “the longest 10 minutes of my life.” Just like a pro, though – she took it around Lake Union all by herself, then taxied up to the dock to greet me.
I’m always so happy when we have happy pilots! It’s the thrill of a lifetime, the first solo flight. And to have two of them on one day? Priceless.
Come fly with us! And, congrats to my flying gal pals, Anne and Yvette!
