Surely can't have been much in it in terms of first solos?
The vast majority of first solos were done on the T 31 (Mk3). Only those too large for the Mk3 were trained on the T21. Some sites only used T21s because of their small size. Obviously they sent all their cadets solo in the Barge.

The T21s main role was Air experience flying.
