soloed his Sig Fazer on July 6, 2005. Scott built his airplane from
the Sig kit. He beefed it up to handle any bumps and bruises it
might encounter in the learning process. Congratulations Scott!

only about 15 minutes of stick time flying our Sig Kadet II and
His Horizon Hobby/Hangar 9 Alpha Trainer, my son, Eric McMullan,
soloed on December 19, 2004. This was only his fourth time at the
sticks. I had him make s turns with the aircraft and then had him
pull through a loop. Then I had him work on using the throttle on
the aircraft and make low, slow passes. Finally, he brought the
airplane in and made a perfect landing. Then he took the airplane
off three times and landed three more times! I was totally excited.
It usually takes several hours before anyone is ready to solo and
he did it with about 15 minutes total flying time! Congratulations
