Lucy Laby's First Solo

Lucy is one of the original SCAC Young Eagles, eagerly joining the programme in 2016. She has had the opportunity to fly in Tiger Moths, Yak 52’s, as well as aerobatics since becoming a Young Eagle.
Lucy attended the Young Eagles conference in 2017, and travelled with the South Canterbury Aero Club team to the Flying NZ Regional and National Championships.
Lucy’s experience with the Young Eagles programme has inspired her to one day become an airline pilot.
After huge effort and determination, and in trying conditions, Lucy completed her first solo on her 16th Birthday.
