Thanks you guys....

I've been learning in Lake Havasu. The plane is owned by Ted he is like a second father to me. He's known me sense age five. We fly all over place air shows stuff like that. We've even land at Wheelers Ranch... LOL it's in the desert.

CONGRATS!!! Very cool. How'd it go? What were you flying? Be careful, it's addicting. I took my kids up in a Cessna 172 today (I own a Piper Comanche, but it's high performance/complex, and I'm still getting trained for that). We flew from La Verne, to Palos Verdes, down the coast and back to La Verne. Nothing like it! Fly Safe! :)devil

Nevermind, I jus noticed the video.....Duh. Very cool!!!

BTW, nice squeaker on the landing. Especially nice since the camera was rolling. Looks like an exp. plane?

I flew out of Havasu On Sunday, weather was perfect. You will never forget this day, knowing that your security blanket (instructor) was not there is sobering. congratulations, Greg

Congrats Mike, One of the proudest moments of my life was when I passed my checkride and got my ticket. Just remember, your ticket is your "ticket to learn".
Go gettum SkyKing!

Congrats, it is a big deal once your off the ground. A quick look in the cockpit and your all alone. Good job and good luck finishing. Stick with it. A lot of people loose interest after the solo.
