It has been confirmed today that (depending on the weather of course), I will be doing my first solo flight on Thursday 11th November.

As far as I know, this will involve doing some circuits with my instructor and then when / if he feels I’m ready, he will hop out of the plane (once landed of course) and I will do a final circuit on my own.

It is a potentially monumental occasion for me to be honest but I won’t say more now until it’s done.
