A pilot’s first solo is a day full of mixed emotions: excitement and nervousness, pride and fear. This video shows all those feelings, as a student pilot makes her first trip around the pattern by herself in a Cessna 152. If you’re not a pilot yet, it’s a great preview of what’s to come. If you are a pilot, you’ll probably remember exhaling at the end like Erin does here.
