Brian's first solo at Tatenhill!

Brian Thompson has recently flown his first solo at Tatenhill. He performed a perfect landing on runway 08 in PA28 aircraft G-TALE after having to do a go around on his initial approach owing to an aircraft ahead that was slow to clear the runway.

He has been travelling down from Middlesborough to Tatenhill on a regular basis to have lessons with instructor Craig.

Brian has a weakness in his left arm, but we managed to adapt methods to overcome this and now he can fly and operate the aircraft very well and in a safe manner. Obviously Brian was very pleased as the photo shows!
