The moment: first solo on my 16th birthday, August 3, 2018

The pilot: Sunflower Ross

The place: Shelbyville Municipal Airport, Shelbyville, TN (KSYI)

The aircraft: Cessna 150G

The memory:It was my 16th Birthday and all my friends and family along with a few local reporters were gathered for my first solo. The weather was perfect with calm winds. This was the first big step in my aviation career. I will be perusing my private during the next year and plan to continue to commercial.
