Two Helicentre Aviation' students achieved their first solo circuit today at Leicester Airport!
A huge congratulations to Mark and Joe today who both flew their first solo circuit.
Instructor Captain Paul Snook stepped out of the Schweizer 300CBi helicopter on the 'H' to standby and watch Mark's first solo sortie, a circuit on runway 10R.
Ten minutes later Joe approached the 'H' and Instructor Captain Llewis Ingamells climbed out of the Robinson R22 to view Joe climbing away on his too, first solo circuit on runway 10R!
Lots of hand shakes went around once back in the pilots lounge, and all of Helicentre Aviation would like to publicly congratulate both Mark & Joe on today's success and their individual progression throughout the PPL(H) course.
Well Done Chaps!
