1 min read


The moment: first solo on my 16th birthday

The pilot: Steven Solloway

The place: Aurora Municipal Airport, Aurora, IL (KARR)

The aircraft: Cessna 162 Skycatcher

The memory: I was fortunate to be able to perform my first solo flight on my 16th birthday and obtain my Private pilot certificate on my 17th birthday.  I am currently working on a Commercial/Instrument at St. Louis University while pursuing a degree in Aerospace Engineering. I hope to someday work for the Boeing Aircraft Company in its Flight Test Division.
