Props (pun intended) to our student, Peter Handy, on his first solo flight! At approximately 3:00 pm Sunday May 6th, after some take-offs, landings, go-arounds, and simulated engine out approaches, Peter’s instructor Tom departed the Piper Cherokee N6462R to turn Peter loose. Peter taxied to runway 22, and after a few minutes of waiting for arrivals to get on the ground, he was cleared for take-off, and off he went. In no time he was climbing out and making his way around the pattern. His first approach and landing went off without a hitch, and as he taxied past Tom, who was waiting on the ramp near the taxiway, he got the thumbs up for another go. The next trip up had a new twist, Peter was given instructions for a “left 270à¥¦ to rejoin final for spacing”, he took it in stride and brought it back in for an even better landing than the first. Excellent job, Peter!
