Take off on First Solo

Paul Noll Learns to Fly at Hayward, California

3. Paul Takes off on his First Solo

Here I takeoff on my first supervised solo. The flight instructor sits near the runway with a radio so he can be in touch with me. I'm not sure who is more nervous, the student pilot of the instructor. We have also notified the airport tower that a first supervised solo is taking place so he can be perhaps more helpful and observant. For me all went well and soon after 3 supervised solos I can fly and practice when I want but without any passengers.
