Tamara Solos in a DA40!

(Sorry Flyers, I'm still behind because this happened a month ago!) Congratulations to Tamara Vessi on her first solo flight in a Diamond DA40! Tamara was already a glider pilot back home in Australia and which meant she arrived with flying experience. Her practice time, then, was spent focusing on radio, airspace and managing the noisy spinning thingy up front. The confidence came quickly and before long it was time to kick her instructor out of the plane. It was a warm day when she took off on her own for three smooth landings and when she taxied back to the hangar her smile was ear to ear! Cross country and night flight next, and more smiles are sure to be seen. Well done, Tamara! Great flying!
