Mike Bai, 20 years old .... First Solo in the SportStar

"I am studying Architecture Design to become an Architect in Adelaide from Shandong Province, China.

I have always wanted to fly and my dream has been to become a Pilot.

Flying my First Solo .... a dream come true, it has been a dream for 15 years. I was a little bit nervous, but it felt amazing! I want to do more!"

Now, there is more to this story .... Mike lives in the centre of Adelaide. He books his flying lesson near lunchtime so that he has time to make the journey as he doesn't have a car. He gets on a train to Seaford that takes 40 mins, then he catches a UBER to Adelaide Biplanes .... He really wants to fly!!

Josh Hooper and his friends spent the morning at the beach off Moana marking out a message in the sand.

Later that day he flew with his girlfriend Caitlin Noble hip to hip in the front open cockpit of the big radial engined Waco biplane. There down on the beach was the question picked out in stones from the beach laid that morning .....

Will You Marry Me ??

We were all peaking out when the Waco pulled up .... YES!! IT'S A YES!!

Well done mate, consider joining the ADF and get paid to get your degree. Much better than getting into debt if you are looking at the Air force anyway.

Conor Lowry .... New Recreational Pilot Certificate in the tailwheel Champ.

"I was 14 years old and I'd been watching the movie 'Dunkirk' where they flew across The English Channel. I remember wishing that I could do that! Dad said we'll look into it for you ....

Mum and Dad gave me a Gift Voucher for Christmas and I started learning to fly.

I felt the relief of having flown the test and then Karl said I'd passed!! I thought WOW!! and it was still sinking in as I walked to the office .... I could fly!! "

16 years old .... WELL DONE!!
