The Flying Aussie

[caption id="attachment_807" align="alignnone" width="180" caption="Click to Enlarge"][/caption] Congratulations to Catherine Woods for her initial solo flight in a Diamond Star DA40! Her instructor Nik Gavalas and a group of fellow aviators gathered to cheer her on as she did three circuits at Long Beach today. Catherine flew wonderfully well despite the slightly gusty crosswind conditions which developed quickly and unexpectedly. The cross country phase is next with a flight to Carlsbad... or French Valley... or Camarillo... whichever she fancies. Well done, Catherine, you'll remember this logbook entry for the rest of your flying days!
