Solo Wall of Fame

 

 

Pilot's Choice Solo Wall of Fame

There exists a long unofficial tradition of the "Solo T-Shirt".  Upon completion of the student's first solo it is tradition for the flight instructor who solo'd said student to cut off the back of the soloist's sweat soaked t-shirt.  Once the soloist's "Solo T-Shirt" has the chance to dry out, the "Solo T-Shirt" is then adorned with an array of words in eloquent prose which catches the eye as one walks past the "Pilot's Choice Solo Wall".  One day your shirt will probably be on this wall, if you dare to sit in the hot seat!
