Hey guys, it's been a while since I've posted on here so just thought I'd check back in so to speak. So yesterday in the evening murk at drizzle at Clench Common I was let loose in the C42, just the one circuit but one hell of a rewarding one nonetheless. I wish I could tell you more about it but can't really remember much at all! I'm told my landing looked good so I'll happily take that. Smiles all round and many many beers last night, brings my grand total up to 9hrs 5mins of which 10mins are solo... I'm getting there, albeit slowly. :lol:

Cheers,
Ben.

Well done Ben. I remember my first solo on microlights back in '95, I felt 10 feet tall when I got out of the aircraft. In 1999 when I first did my first solo in a Cessna 152 I only felt 7 feet tall so the feeling must wear off.
