 What is the solo ceremony?

The solo flight ceremony is a informal recognition of the students achievement and their ability to fly alone. When the instructor feels that their student is ready, the student receives their endorsement and takes off by their self. The student takes one flight around the airport pattern and comes in for a landing. After the successful landing the student taxi's the aircraft back to the terminal where the instructor and the rest of the school is waiting. When the student gets out of the airplane the rest of the academy cheers as the instructor congratulates their student. From there, the instructor cuts off the tail off of the shirt to symbolize that the instructor is no longer needed. Finally the student is baptized into the field of aviation by the other students as they dump a cooler of icy water on them.
