Simone A flies his first solo at Snitterfield

Last week, student sailplane pilot Simone flew his first solo flight from Stratford on Avon Gliding Club at Snitterfield airfield.

Simone was attending one of our gliding course weeks which he was using to consolidate previous pre-solo flight training he has undertaken with us.

Senior Stratford flight instructor Andy B put Simone through his paces on Wednesday and authorised him to fly his first solo.

Simone took to the air in Stratford’s Schleicher K21 G-CLVU for two successful solo flights over Warwickshire countryside.

Well done Simone!
