The last of the Bautista siblings, 23 year old Student Pilot Tricia Mae Sanchez Bautista, successfully achieved the most coveted feat in a career in aviation, “1st Solo Flight” on or about 1000H, 08 Nov 2017 or exactly 17 days ago when his younger brother Gerard soloed ahead. Flying RP-C2211, the young and daring female eaglet proved to one and all that being a fragile member of the opposite sex is not an obstacle to one’s dream of making it as a certified pilot when she impressed on her assigned checker, Senior FI Capt Roche Carranza to release her for 1st solo without an inkling of hesitation. Incidentally, the new 1st Soloist who’s from Baseview Homes, Lipa City is one among the increasing products of De La Salle University Lipa who seek and aspire to be a pilot. Moreover, flying runs in the blood as his father was once upon a time an Instructor Pilot in the PAF Flying School and currently a PIC, Captain in PAL.
Congratulations SP Tricia Bautista for catching up in your long and winding flight plan to a very lucrative and glamorous flying career. Kudos likewise to the very supportive and proud parents. Have a Happy & Safe Flight always! Cheers and God bless!✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
