Talk about having the ultimate smile on the face.. I will be logging several hour this week and most likely next week too in an Aeronca Champ. Talk about "STICK TIME".

Dec 07, 2003, 08:39 AM

I SOLOED the Aeronca Champ last Wednesday. I made two very nice landings but after the second landing my instructor said to stop so he could tell me what I need to correct on the last landing and the next thing I know he is on his way out the door. Did 4 solo take offs and landing. Can't even describe the feeling. I didnít think I was nervous but when I taxied back to the hanger and shut the ignition off I noticed the death grip I had on the Stick. My shirt tail is now hanging amongst, I'd say 50 to 75 others who have done it through out the years.

Did 6 solo T/O and landings the next day. Now I am grounded for probably a week or so because of snow and the runway being grass.

I'm still smiling
