First Solo Flight

By: Flight Instructor Bob Garity

Simon says, "Turn me loose!" And we did. Congratulations to David Simon who has been chomping at the bit to complete his First Solo Flight. Weather conditions at JYO (Leesburg Executive Airport) this morning were ideal and David became "one" with his Diamond Star. His confident smile was evidence that he thoroughly enjoyed his 1st experience as "Pilot in Command."

**Photo is not the exact plane David used but is an example of the Diamond DA40 that he regularly uses.
