First Solo Flight

  • Trevor Edwards
  • Interview by: Ewan Burnet


Your first solo, was airborne, low level 'round Scotland,

come back, shoot some circuits and land.

So you're flying for like an hour or something.

Getting to the end of the runway and thinking,

I'm from Woolwich, how can they let me

fly this machine, this is amazing.

Do they know who I am?

This is just incredible.

And then you put a reheat in and off you go,

and race around Scotland, by yourself.

In a multi-million pound airplane.
