First Solo Flight

This is a video of my first solo flight while working on my Private Pilot’s license.  Although there were overcast skies that day, the winds were calm.  In short, an almost perfect day to solo.  I’ve since gone on to receive an instrument rating but I’ll never forget that first time lifting off the runway with only myself onboard.

As an added bonus, below is my last flight around the pattern with my instructor Luis and wife who was shooting video.  In all, I made four flights around the pattern before my instructor and wife left me to go fly on my own.
