Soloed today at KSFB,in a C-172M and yes i was nervous as hell.I really could'nt believe how different the aircraft flew without the extra weight in it. But 14.7 hrs with this instructer i did well. I wasn't real happy with my landings but i got down safely 3 times and could reuse the aircraft lol. Now with 21.4 total time including 0.5 in a multi im on my way to a new career flying for a living. I do have a long way to go but all it takes is time and money. I started this back in the mid 80's when it was a lot cheaper but stopped due to stupidity and was still in high school, so between girls and sports didn't have the time. I have'nt had that much fun in a long time.
