Solo Recognition - November
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.

Shortly before, or soon after you leave 43 Air School you will have to make some critical decisions regarding your future career.The available options are often as confusing as they are potentially expensive, especially if you really plan to pursue a flying career as your first choice! One can assume you must have had this in mind given all the hard work you have put into obtaining your license.
