I did it—I soloed!
The most nerve-racking part of the whole day was right before takeoff. As soon as my wheels lifted off runway 27, I was overcome with excitement, confidence and adrenaline.
I talked to myself the whole time and couldn't help but say "WOW" every five seconds.
Three times around the pattern and three landings!
It's hard to describe the feeling of accomplishment after soloing for the first time. This will be a day I'll never forget!
Jason thought some people might be interested in watching the entire first pattern and landing of my solo flight, so below is the whole thing from wheels up to wheels down.
