Well after 13 hours i finally went solo yesterday at ybaf! what a feeling, it didnt really hit me until turning base and realising im the only one that can land the plane!


Anyway back to more solo circuits for the time being but any idea how i can listen to air traffic during my solo time online it was on sunday the 4th at 9.30am.

Well done that man...


"High Flight" by John Magee


Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth


And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;


Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth


of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things


You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung


High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,


I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung


My eager craft through footless halls of air....


Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue


I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.


Where never lark, or even eagle flew —


And, while with silent lifting mind I have trod


The high untrespassed sanctity of space,


- Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.


Feels fantastic doesn't it? 012_thumb_up.gif.cb3bc51429685855e5e23c55d661406e.gif 011_clap.gif.c796ec930025ef6b94efb6b089d30b16.gif

Great, Flight one is who I was going to use for my PPL. Good to hear another great endorsement for them.

Congratulations Shags my greatest fear was am I going to bounce the Gazelle on touchdown. Landing was just great.
