Congratulations to Harry Saddler – who soloed N739UL on 28R at KOAK on Friday, April 17, 2015!
To his credit – he did not wear a parachute as he normally would when aboard a single engine Cessna. (Previously Harry preferred to jump out of aircraft, we are trying to break him of this habit.)
The tower called a go around on the first pass due to proximity to another aircraft, but after that Harry did 3 touch and goes. He bounced a couple times – likely due to the lack of 230lbs of hot air normally sitting next to him.
Great work Harry.
