Chris finally got the break in the weather he has patiently been waiting for to master his first solo landings here at KRNO.
This is the first of I'm sure many accomplishments coming in Chris' flying career.
Congrats to Tyler on his first Solo at KRNO.
Tyler faced a runway change, a 360 for spacing, and an Airbus landing in the parallel runway for quite an eventful solo, but he handled it all perfectly.
Stacie is Reno's newest Commercial Pilot!
The studying for her CFI license has already begun.
Contrats to John on his first solo flight at Silver Springs. The weather finally eased up enough for John to get this accomplished so he can work on finishing up his license.

Congrats to Joe Ledkins for his first solo flight, even more exciting is that his son got to watch this achievement with Joe's instructor Cody and then enjoy the post solo party.
