Is the 'air law before first solo' thing not a club requirement rather than a legal one? Although most clubs seems to require it.
Anyway, congrats on first solo and on passing the exam
Hope you don't have to wait as long as me to do it again though, first solo was 25/10/07, due mainly to weather but also other frustrations, I am *still* waiting for 2nd solo
And yes, the empty seat is a fantastic sight
ah I remember it well......
