First Solo Flight of Student Pilot Chester Uy Chanbonpin


There is no stopping LEIAAI in it’s forward thrust to a grand take-off and airlift to the many wonders of flight training at San Fernando Airport, La Union, the Eagles’ Nest, home-sanctuary of our young aviators. Maybe by Divine Providence, the prevailing good weather condition have been experienced by the flight school for a prolonged period of time, which is considered a blessing from the high heavens! Thus, on a very clear sunny Thursday morning on or about 0935H, on board RP-C7530, a young and daring 25 year old native of nearby upland Baguio City, Student Pilot Chester Uy Chanbonpin made it as the 1st Soloist not only for the day but also in the 14 strong Batch India 2018. The dashing 1st Soloist for the day, who’s a graduate of St. Louis University, BS Civil Engineering was confidently released for 1st solo by Senior FI, Capt Philmer Powao in just 10.5 flying hours before solo, a very commendable feat indeed! With this initial success by the brand new 1st Soloist for the day, it would all be hard work and discipline as the main ingredients in strengthening his frail feathers and wingspan to eventually fulfill the most cherished dreams of every young aviator to be a certified commercial airline pilot!
Once again, congratulations SP Chester Chanbonpin for attaining the most significant highlight of your early flying career, the unforgettable 1st Solo Flight. Likewise, kudos to the very proud and supportive parents! Have a happy & Safe flight always. May the good Lord, the Supreme Ruler of the Universe and Master of the destinies of men bless you in your flight plan to a very bright flying career! Cheers!
