Visibility: more than 10 kilometers
ceiling: more than 5.000 feet
GAFOR: “C” clear skies!
Wind: VRB, 1-2 knots (dead calm)
Location: EDAY (Strausberg)
Equipment: “Kilo Sierra” (Cessna 172)
Yesterday I had my first five solo rounds in “Kilo Sierra”, the four seat Cessna 172 I’ve been training on lately.
This was the third time I had a “first solo” in a new aircraft. A very special moment every time. But also a situation that I can face with more confidence now, compared to the “first first solo“. The day was sunny and very calm, perfect conditions.
Next stop: Check ride for the 2 ton rating!
To be continued…
