Ernie Solos!

[caption id="attachment_1484" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Click to Enlarge Image"][/caption] Congratulations to Ernie Schmider for soloing today in a Diamond Star DA40! Ernie's come to us always having wanted to learn to fly and has definitely been bitten by the aviation bug. The conditions were good though a few clouds floated near the airport and Ernie flew like a pro. Reflecting on his solo, he mused "in some ways it was less stressful than normal".  Well done, Ernie! The cross country phase is coming up next!
