Today I went for a lesson with James my instructor, thinking we would be doing more circuits and emergencies in the circuit, we completed the lesson taxied back toward the office and James then let me in on the fact that I was about to go solo.


Without my instructor in the passenger seat the little Jabiru LSA climbed like a homesick angle, I think I was almost at 500agl by the end of the runway. There were about 3 others in the circuit so it made for a reasonably busy time keeping a lookout.


The circuit was fairly uneventful, (thankfully) landing with the very slightest of bounces. Not a greaser but any upright landing is a good one.


I'm booked in for more tomorrow, I think I becoming addicted :thumb_up:


have fun
