First Solo - Mike

Congratulations to the new SOLO pilot, Mike!!! 

Mike started his training in Canada in a low wing airplane.  He was already familiar with many of the systems and concepts of aerodynamics and how the airplane flys.  Once he was up to date on the regulations in the US and had a thorough understanding of the complex airspace in the Bay Area, and the fine tuning for the high wing Cessna was complete, Mike was more than ready to solo...which he did on January 22.  In his spare time Mike is an avid paraglider...he really loves the skies!
