Marywood Freshmen complete the first solo flight

The students included below have completed the first solo flight. It is a big first step for them, to fly alone for the first time.  Tradition has been that after the solo, the other students and instructors cut the shirt tail off the new solo student.  Not sure where that began, but that has been the tradition.

  • Joseph Gorgol
  • Nathaniel Hart
  • Sean Bartlett 
  • Ryan Litwinsky


Those students who have completed their solo's are now moving into the next phase of the private pilot program.  The training will cover cross country flying and additional solo flights.  They are on track to finish the private pilot program by the end of this semester

Congratulations to all of the Marywood Aviators
