/ Reflections of a Student Pilot /
Last fall I came in from a flight lesson and was joined by another student and his CFI in the flight office. Smiling big, the instructor announced that Mike had just soloed. After a round of congratulations, I asked Mike about how many hours did he have logged to this point. Just over 20, was his reply. At the time I remember I had about six flight hours. A moment of far-off wonderment shot though me, which was followed by a quick calculation of how short I was to Mike's hours. At the time, it seemed like a long way. At six hours, I was still trying to steer straight down the runway. Ugh... long-way-off.

Fast forward to March, and with just over 20 hours, I soloed. Three touch and goes from within the traffic pattern, straight take offs and landings included. Looking back I think of that day I met Mike and what I yet had to learn and accomplish. Plugging away with just one lesson a week - when not cancelled by weather - I made it. Now Im that guy in the office that new students take note of... well, maybe.

Im looking forward to this weeks lesson. But, they are calling for rain.

The real value of learning to fly, or earning added endorsements, is far more than the achievement itself. Its how it shapes and extends you as a person - personally and perhaps professionally - and influences the things you do, and the people you touch.

Once a pilot, always a pilot. // Former commanders of the left seat fill the Thunderbird theater at N57 aiming to regain currency and soar in the wind of flight again. NICE.

Rusty Pilot Seminars, presented by the AOPA, provide the easiest path for former pilots to rejoin the general aviation adventure.

Thanks to all those who attended, N57 for the use of their space, and AOPA for the materials and presentation.
