Initial Solo Cross Country

[gallery] Congratulations to Steven Natvig on completing his first solo cross country on Sunday, January 11th! He flew his family's DA-40 N541AJ (recognize the tail number from the G1000?) to Camarillo which despite the general chaos on weekends was appealing because "I really want Tri-Tip and eggs". He was number 5 for landing (a first for him), had to overfly the runway to join the traffic pattern, was forced to do a go-around because of a Cessna sleeping on the threshold and was cut-off while taxiing to the runway. Was it worth it? "Absolutely!" said Steven. Good job, Steven! Gotta tackle the written next... Hey! Who sends their students to Camarillo solo on a Sunday, anyway? (Hmm... Erick B....)
