Today, after two months of flying lessons, and dozens upon dozens of supervised take-offs and landings, I soloed for the first time. I did 3 take-offs and landings on my own at Palo Alto, in Citabria N5054B. Below is a picture of the plane and I after the flight. Right after that picture was taken, as per tradition, the back of my shirt was cut off and marked up to commemorate the event. On the shirt now is a drawing of a pig landing at an airport. It now graces a wall in West Valley’s Palo Alto office. I’m probably about half-way towards my private pilot’s license. This flying thing is pretty fun.
