As programmed, the remaining flightless eaglets of Batch “Foxtrot” 2017 are dwindling to it’s minimum level as far as soloing is concerned. This morning, on or about 0850H, September 28, 2017, another of its distinguished member, Student Pilot Hans Bernard Anthony Garcia Eco, a 22 year old resident of Pasig City and a graduate of Ateneo de Manila, BS Commo Technology Management, successfully made it to the elite list of 1st Soloists of LEIAAI late this month. Flying Cessna 172M, RP-C7857 on a clear weather day, wind calm, with RWY 190° in-use, subject student pilot performed exceptionally well, making safe and smooth landings during touch and go maneuvers which were primary factors that prompted his assigned checker, Senior FIight Instructor Capt Enrique Maria “King” Morales to release him for 1st Solo Flight. Thus, with this significant feat, the young and daring eaglet is now duly authorized to takeoff, explore and conquer the unlimited airspace of the horizon as well as the clear blue skies of San Fernando Airport, La Union including Northern and Central Luzon.
Once again, congratulations SP Hans Eco for attaining the most sought- after objective in a career on aviation industry, the unforgettable “First Solo Flight”! Likewise, kudos to the ever supportive and proud parents! Happy flying & have a SAFE Flight always! Cheers and God bless!✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
