“Uekawa-san, next flight of the ASK21 preparing over there is the final-check for the pilot in the cockpit. If he passes, we’ll have his first-solo flight today...” said a senior member of Keio Soaring Team. First-solo flight is a huge step-forward for all pilots. It was big honor to be at the airfield when he – high-school club member – successfully made it on the day. Congratulations on his first-solo, and it was so nice to catch this big moment!
