First PPL Solo Experience Interviews

We decided to create an interesting and information new video series with students sharing their first PPL solo experiences, which is a day pilots will remember for their whole flying career. The idea behind the videos is to inspire new pilots and students to “give it a go”, each video interview can be watched below or on our Youtube channel. We would like to extend a massive thanks to all the students who got involved in helping us to create this video series.
