Junior Glider Pilot Noah flies solo at Stratford on Avon Gliding Club.

Congratulations to Junior Glider Pilot Noah who flew solo for the first time at Stratford on Avon Gliding club last Sunday!

Noah, a keen member of our club, was put through his paces with a series of simulated launch failures and unusual attitude recoveries by Stratford senior instructor Mike C to ensure his readiness to fly solo. He then also flew with Stratford’s CFI Pete F in K13 G-DCBW who thoroughly briefed him in readiness for his first solo flight.

Noah’s dad Tom watched as Noah took to the sky for the first time as a solo pilot in command of an aircraft. Noah executed a perfect launch and landing where he was greeted by his elated father.

Noah went on to fly two further consolidating flights the same day, the first of many for this enthusiastic junior glider pilot!

Well done Noah!
