Maybe by Divine Providence, after a week lull on soloing at our training hub, this morning on or about 0920H, March 20, 2019, flying RP-C7843, a dashing 33 year old heartthrob from faraway Kauswagan, Cagayan de Oro City, Student Pilot Joey Abogueña Aquino finally made it in the elite short list of 1st Soloists this month. A graduate of two (2) courses, Nursing and Computer Info System from Liceo de Cagayan University, Joey was released for 1st Solo by Senior FI, Capt Vey Sastromedjo. Henceforth, effective immediately, today’s 1st Soloist and the last Soloist from Batch Juliet 2018, SP Joey Aquino may now safely takeoff, explore and conquer the infinite vastness of the horizon as well as the clear blue skies of San Fernando Airport, La Union. However, if the subject student is to succeed in his primary goal of attaining his elusive dream of a lifetime by becoming a certified commercial airline pilot, he would need to strictly practice virtues of courtesy, discipline, hard work and professionalism.
Once again, congratulations SP Joey Aquino for achieving the most significant event in your early flying career, the unforgettable 1st Solo Flight! Same accolades goes to the proud and very supportive parents! Happy flying and have a Safe Flight always! Cheers & God bless!
