Reminded me of my 1st solo - (in a glider) I remember the continuous (internal) check-lists being run as you go round and down.
Nicely judged turn off base onto finals, & great speed control all the way down. Now for the full ticket.....
I was surprised when I flew ( dual ) power in USA, that the altimeter was set at sea level, but it does mean you don't have to fiddle with the zero when landing away from home, just read the airfield hight from the map, do the maths once, and you are done.
Thanks for sharing your joy.
