Ellie gains her Private Pilot Licence

After becoming the youngest female solo pilot on her 14th birthday in gliders, Ellie has now become one of the youngest solo pilots on light aircraft by soloing at 16 years and 3 days. She was ready to solo on her 16th and would have become the first person to solo both gliders and light aircraft at the youngest possible age (16), but storm Diane thwarted this.
Ellie as also passed her private pilots licence exams each block being a Level 3 (A level) equivalent. She has also obtained a high card colour, 90 solo flights up to two hours, bronze certificate and silver height in gliding.

Ellie has ambitions to become a test pilot in the future and with her determination we are sure she will get there.

Well done Ellie!
