This thread celebrates any noteworthy milestones along the path of your aviation career - whether that be private or commercial - to be cast into internet eternity forever more. I look forward to updating this thread regularly.

As and when achievements are posted on the forum or PMed to me, I will update this thread in the most timely fashion possible. If I miss something do let me know.

Not just restricted to ab initio, those gaining additional ratings, differences training, qualifications - and any other licences - are welcome to join the 2018 wall of fame. In the 2017 thread we had close to 100 entries, including 26 first licenses issued!

Surely 2018 will beat that easily?!

Here's hoping for a bumper year of First Solo, Qualifying Cross Country and PPL Skill Test notifications :thumleft:

Very nice indeed. how to make Christmas extra special :) An example to be followed by all!

Looks like there will be spate of new licenses coming soon. My money is on @treborsnave to get there first? But no rush - enjoy the fun :thumleft:
