That first solo flight is a defining event in the life of a pilot, whether your goal is to fly airliners or just have fun in the air. While there’s no maximum age for solo, most people know there’s a minimum: you have to be 16. But that’s only for powered airplanes. As this video shows, you can solo a glider at just 14. Ride along on Jack Wallace’s first solo in a Blanik L-23 for your daily dose of inspiration.
