Solo time...

For those of you who don't know anything about pilots, getting your license, or flying for that matter-when I refer to solo time, this does actually mean-me and the plane...that's it!!! I have to build a total of 10 hours of solo flight time as one of the many requirements in retrieving my private pilot's license. I literally have been in awe with each of these solo flights. I know my instructor would die if he knew that the other day I snuck my camera in the plane with me and shot a video and some pics!! It is just amazing, I wanted to share it with all of you. I have always been religious and spiritual, but flying has truly strengthened my walk with my Savior. I'm not talking in the way of praying to God every time I'm up that nothing go wrong or plead with him to help me get this thing landed, but more along the lines of a peace with Him. I am in awe of His creations, and so much more aware of the details He took time to create. Flying has been such a blessing lately, with the sad news of yet another baby cousin of mine passing away, the anger I feel is lifted and replaced with a peace for an hour at a time as I build my solo time. I am hoping to gain an understanding to the ciaos and pray I will have the words to console my dear friend Sara.

Here is a pic to prove its just me in the little two-seater plane!!!!

Here is the video I took. I was trying to get the entire panel in the shot to show various instruments to Blake. I also was doing some turns for you guys and then show at the end that its just me in there!! Haha It is too loud in there for you to hear my radio calls and narration but I think its a cool video anyhow :)
