The moment: First solo (age 85)
The pilot: John Dundas
The place: Fairchild International Airport (KCLM), Port Angeles, WA
The aircraft: C172M
The memory: A couple of years ago a pilot “friend” took me for a ride in his Ercoupe. Soon another pilot “friend” insisted that I learn to fly. Thousands of dollars later I had my first solo, in October 2018. Now my first friend has sold his plane, and the second friend has given up flying! I’ve got a ways to go for the private pilot license, but I’m working on it with enthusiasm!
