Geoff Gerrits on his birthday

June 23, 2016. Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Geoff Gerrits conducted his first demonstrated solo flight in Piper Cherokee N1682J on runway 03 at the Stevens Point Municipal Airport.

The term “solo flight” means that flight time during which a student pilot is the sole occupant of the aircraft performing the duties of a pilot in command while flying three takeoffs and three landings to a full stop. The first solo flight (without an instructor on board) is the most memorable experience for student pilots.

Gerrits was especially thrilled to be able to accomplish his first solo on his birthday. Happy Birthday, Geoff and welcome to the skies!IMG_20160623_171425110_HDR
