After one flight yesterday trying to remember HTH you fly and land an airplane aanyway (and doing mostly ok by the time I was done). Today, Ali (my instructor) and I went for a few more pattern landings, and then he stepped off the plane, and I went for my first Solo: 3 landings by myself.
Incidently, even though I knew what to do, I still was a little tense, and managed ok landings, although none were flawless (i.e. nice, tidy and short). Turns out that I was a bit worried about slowing down the plane further even though I should have since I had less weight in the plane, being by myself (this just means that I glided a bit longer over the runway and took a little more room to touch down and stop)

Anyway, this is good news, time to go back and practise more :)
