First Solo Flight of Student Pilot Simeon Salvadora Caringal


After a rainy weekend, this Monday morning, 0915H September 25, 2017, sunny and clear blue skies was the prevailing weather condition which was the primary factor why Student Pilot , an 18 year old high school graduate of La Consolacion College & long resident of Iriga City, successfully achieved his 1st Solo Flight within the prescribed number of flying hours courtesy of Senior FI, Capt Philmer Powao. Flying Cessna 172M RP-C7293, the brand new 1st Soloist, made safe and smooth landings during the required touch & go maneuvers which apparently was the deciding criteria for his release for solo flight. Thus, effective immediately, SP Caringal is now included in the elite short list of the young and daring eaglets authorized to explore and conquer the infinite vastness of the horizon as well as the clear blue skies of San Fernando Airport, La Union, the home sanctuary of the LEIAAI flyboys.
Once again, congratulations to the very young aviator for attaining the most significant level of flying proficiency, the unforgettable 1st Solo Flight! Same kudos as well to the ever supportive and proud parents. Have a happy & Safe flight always! Cheers & God bless!✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
