Sep 12/14 pm – PPG training with Ilya, Gil, Lawrence and Mike

Very good air at the field. Mike added 4 more flights to his log – he is now completely independent. Lawrence ground handled with his canopy, it was going very well but he has hesitated to strap the engine on and ended up missing his opportunity because wind has died on him. Ilya added 2 more flights to his log and Gil managed his first solo! That is only after 2 days of training. His ground handling was above average I wish I could do say that about his flight. Take off was good, climb out too but the rest of the flight was bit unstable with continuous oscillations. The landing was also rough to too overcorrecting on final approach. But it was first flight none the less, well done Gil and congrats, they will only get better.
