On August 9th, 2014, Student Pilot Rusty Sims flew solo in the Sportstar. We were doing some training at Rancho Murieta Airport (KRIU). The time had come for me to get out and send Rusty out to the pattern. Rusty flew the pattern and did some very nice take offs and landings. Congratulations Rusty! Rusty will now be completing a few additional requirements of flight time to prepare for his practical test.
