After 4 short flights to practice my landings, my instructor signed me off to solo today. I flew two short flights alone in the training glider.

More later in my flying blog after I've had time to write it all up this evening.

(Wow, I really can't spell. First posted this as "Fist Solo Flights." That's something completely different, I'd bet...)

Congrats. Does the glider handle differently without that extra weight sitting behind you?
