We have completed the ground school including simulator, Pstar was written – 100 % – and SPP issued. We went to the field and learned how to hook up for forward and reverse. I have demonstrated kiting but it was super windy + Mike was tired after 12 hr drive. We finished at 7:30 pm long day. This guy never forgets anything and does everything well the first time!
We had a very good conditions at the field last night. After several tries Jeff took off for his first solo flight after only three training sessions – definitely above average. Will came and did some ground handling. Jeff then added another flight to his log for total of two.
Congrats Jeff on you first solo
We had very good conditions at the field. Jeff completed his motor exercises such as motor assembly and preflight, start up and running under power. he also learned how to use PPG helmet, check on channel, lock channel and make sure that the batteries are fresh. We also ground handled first with just training harness but shortly after with the motor on his back. We eventually lost most of the wind but Jeff was doing really well – I estimate that he may need one more session and then its first solo flight…
