Friday photo: Dave Meere first solo

The moment: First solo

The pilot: Dave Meere (right)

The place: Clermont County Airport, (I69), Batavia, OH.

The aircraft: C172N

The memory: Reaching the point of solo flight had been just out of reach for several years. Fortunately I discovered the University of Cincinnati program and the incredible staff which enabled me to complete my dream.  The elation and pride that I felt when landing into that beautiful sunset is indescribable!  Now on to finishing my PPL and many other ratings!
