My knuckles white, the engine straining to lift me, I was off the ground…
Time stood still…
My first solo flight had begun and there was no turning back!
An inescapable truth dawned on me – I need to land this thing or die trying!
I was all alone, my instructor was watching from the ground, unable to take over the controls to avert a disaster as he had done, so many times before, in training.
I was climbing out, 500 feet in the air and heading away from the airport. If I didn’t turn this aircraft around by myself and get it safely back on the runway, I was done for!
Fear gripped me, but then my training kicked in, and a few sweaty minutes later, the runway swung back into sight.
I could “hear” my instructor’s mantra, “Keep it straight… steady the descent … watch the speed … watch it … watch it”, followed by the sweet, sweet sound of rubber kissing the runway.
Relief washed over me…I had done it, I had survived!
A major milestone achieved.
I had chosen to do it myself, to learn to fly. It took months of training and heaps of cash. At that moment, I was beyond grateful for every penny spent and every hour of coaching.
