The moment: First Solo
The pilot: Rebecca Frechette
The place: Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport (KOSC), Oscoda, MI
The aircraft: PA-28 180
The memory: I thought I was finishing a regular lesson as I pulled off the runway to taxi back to the hangars but my flight instructor told me he was getting out and he wanted me to take the airplane for a lap around the pattern. He gave me a thumbs up and said, “you got this!” This is one of those moments I’ll remember forever! My first solo. I’ve been dreaming about this moment for a long time.
