The traditional removal of a new pilot's shirt tail is a sign of the instructor's new confidence in his student. 

In the days of tandem trainers, the instructor would tug at the student’s shirt tail whenever he was getting himself into trouble. After the first solo, the new pilot is competent in the air and does not need such a safety device. 

This tradition has been modernised at 43 by cutting ties instead of shirt tails at our monthly Solo parties.
