Gets soaked by Al-Mahdi
It was a chilly November day (-6c) and Ryan did his solo circuit but his classmates were kind enough to at least do the ceremonial soaking with warm water.
Congratulations Ryan... keep up the good work!
Alexandra Doktor was the next one in line for her first solo, which she completed on October 30th. Hopefully it wasn't too chilly during her ceremonious soaking.
Kenny Hsu solos, October 20th 2010. Congratulations on a great first flight!
Congratulations to Brandon Murphy who also completed his first solo on October 14th 2010
Congratulations to Patrick Lajeunese who completed his First Solo on October 14th 2010.
Well Done, Patrick!
Many moons ago, or at least it feels that way, I experienced my first solo. Other than passing my flight test I think it was one of my most memorable experiences of flying. I told my instructor at the time, Andrew McKenzie, to not pre-warn me of an upcoming solo since I'd probably get the heebie jeebies. Well one day after a couple of circuits Andrew says "I'm getting out Marc, you're good to go solo for 1 circuit". Well by the time I gulped and was about to utter "you think so?" Andrew was out. The circuit was great and hearing Tower say "Congratulations on your first solo" was exhilarating.
I'm sure our two recent solo students felt very similar.
CONGRATULATIONS to Jamie Scafe and Ashley Ha who went solo this week. Job well done, keep it up!!
Job well done Brendan Williams! Congratulations are in order after Brendan completed his first solo mission. Best of luck in your training from all of us at OFC.
Jason Francoeur has flown his first solo today. Congratulations to him from us at OFC and all his Algonquin classmates.
