Good Luck!   But you won't need it.  You're already prepared for this or your instructor wouldn't have signed you off for it.  It's nothing different that what you've been doing.  Just relax and enjoy it.  Smiley

10x One more question just buggin me!!!It is really interesting for me how you guys are doing in the States.Well i am trough an integrated ATPL training course
JAA because i am from Bulgaria.So i have already logged 80 hours and that's pretty
interesting i still don't have an hour flewn solo.First i thought that well i am not ready for it as the instructor should tell you when to go solo.But we just kept flying and the thing is that in the schedule for training flights i had to do some basic training instead after the first let's say 5 hours we started 12 hours only doing TGL.Then we started cross-country.And now after 80 hours i will have my first solo.
So only for my curiosity please tell me how you do the stuff on the other side of the world. grin

Good lord!  80 hours and still no solo?  I'm not sure what the regulations are in your area, but I would seriously think about a different flight school.  I think I soloed at 9.6 hours and took my private checkride at 43 hours.

Well i find it quite odd too.The regulations are normal...the thing is i've had my solo on paper 1 year ago it when i was finishing my 12-th hour or so.And i got my cross-country solo the same way on paper no real experience.I think it was just a precautionary measure cu'z it was written on papers "solo flight" but i had a safety pilot onboard.Anyway i've got my PPL checkride at 48 1/2 hours just like you but never got a real license as i am training for the CPL.About another flying school it is simply out of the question as there are only 5 FTO's in Bulgaria(we are a small small country after all)and it's the same way everywhere.Making me think that the people are just afraid for their aeroplanes.Today i've landed safely smoothly passing my 80-th hour flight time and i am looking forward for my IFR training starting tommorow.And wanted to tell you cessna 157 that is very very interesting for me about how you do the training there.Will be looking forward for hearing from you...

It might be possible that your country's regulations require a safety pilot to be aboard during solo exercises, and/or they may allow for one to be aboard if say the flight school or insurance company doesn't want the student to maintain liability on their own if something should happen. But that's just a theory as I'm not familiar with their laws/regulations.

Where in Bulgaria are you flying? I am an Australian pilot living in Plovdiv and I would like to talk with you. I have around 5700 hours on many types of aircraft.
