Dieter started his flight training as a 16 year-old obsessed with flying and determined to solo before his 17th birthday. With several weeks to spare before his birthday, he flew his first solo this past Sunday! His determination and perseverance will be valuable tools as he starts his next phase of training, cross country planning and flying. The timing couldn’t be better as he gets to explore New England from the air during peak fall foliage. Congratulations Dieter!
