Here are videos (taken by my CFI) of the takeoff and landing from my first solo flight, at Lincoln Park (N07) on April 27, 2021.



Now that slight rise after I nearly touch down isn’t a bounce. It’s a “balloon”, because I’ve pulled back just a touch too much on the yoke. Rather than try to overcorrect and push the nose down, I just eased the pressure a little and waited until the plane lost energy and settled back down on its own.
