Say Congrats to RantzAir’s New Private Pilots

We’ve had some amazing students at RantzAir!

In addition to watching them take their first solo flight, I love seeing the joy on a student’s face when they pass their final exam and officially become private pilots. I remember the feeling like it was yesterday!

Take a look at a few RantzAir students after passing their final flight exam.

First Solo Flights

One of my greatest joys as a flight instructor is to see my students’ reactions after they take their first solo flight. The radios, the flight controls … they are all under the pilot’s control. It can be scary and exhilarating, all at the same time.

That’s why I love this video from one pilot’s first solo. Her expressions at :58 and 5:10 (when she says “perfect”) are why I do what I do.

Check out some photos I took after RantzAir students completed their first solo flight. Maybe you’ll be next!
