Youngest member to go Solo in HDFC's 56 years history!

Joanna Oreb was only 15 years, 1 month, 11 days old when she first went solo in the Foxbat on 6 January 2015. Papa Bob Needham (Grandad) was her flying instructor. The aviation family is pleased to include yet another aviator. Ray Lind who was in the CTLS witnessed her excellent landing and remarked that her radio calls sounded mature and professional. Well done, Girl!
