  1. 2200 hours, single engine & glider. Fantastic flying for someone with 30 hours! She did precisely what she was trained to do and didn’t even think of turning around. I was waiting for a brief look of panic when the rope broke, but she just kept flying and didn’t skip a beat! I love her comment at the very end – Rope broke at 100 feet and I landed straight ahead. Kudos to Aryanna for flying the glider, staying cool as a cucumber, and keeping her brother calm. Props to her instructor for ingraining the knowledge. I’d fly with her anytime. People need to realize that losing thrust at 100 feet is a big deal and she handled it like a pro.
