    I don't have any cool photos to post of my adventures, but this past sunday was the first day that I actually ever flew anywhere. I flew around the pattern 3 times at KRXE in Rexburg, Idaho. This was my first solo as a student pilot.

    Nerve wracking, but exilarating. This has been a long time coming and I'm pumped to finally be making progress!!

    Thank you!

    You guys and gals on this site are a wealth of information that I am fortunate to have access to. I read every post of every thread that comes up. My instructor is often caught off guard at the details and terminology I am familiar with thanks to you guys. From gear legs to tires to prop pitches to fabric covering options and on and on. This site is great. Even If I'm not posting I'm still reading, so be careful what you post!

    I have been flying a '67 172 G model.

    I actually own a 1941 J5A that I was hoping to receive instruction and learn to fly in, but after a year long saga that I won't bore you with, I have been unable to find a tail wheel endorsed instructor(or any instructor with a plane for that matter), within a reasonable distance from me. I finally said heck with it and am driving 2 hours one way every chance I get to receive instruction in a 172. Once I get my license I will find somebody somewhere that will instruct me to get my tailwheel endorsement.

    My interest is in off airport super cub type stuff. A J5 is the closest I could afford to a supercub at this point.

    I've got a long way to go but I'm just excited to be making some progress finally.

    Good for you...keep at it. It's a shame you are having difficulty finding an instructor who is tailwheel qualified. A lightweight J-5 is a good performer.

    Excited to hear about your progress. More than 40 years later I remember my first solo in almost every detail.

    Iím also sorry you canít find a tailwheel instructor where you are. I ran into that for an upcoming flight review in W Idaho too. Nobody local wants to get in my antique. I probably will have to rent a Cessna to remain legal.
