Solo 1 - first FAA solo

After passing the stage 1 check ride last week, I was expecting to  solo at some stage this week. However, I wasn't expecting it to happen today. 

I performed four Touch and Goes with my instructor. The flight was perfect. Zero wind. Zero traffic. Then he told me I was ready. 

Within a month of commencing my FAA training, I flew two Touch and Goes followed by a full stop. I will save the details for my up and coming podcast.
