The first solo flight of a new pilot comprises that pilot completing a take off, and usually a short flight and safe landing, by him or herself.

Flying such a flight is a milestone known as soloing.

Being solo pilot of an aircraft is different from most other situations in that the pilot has not only to be able to fly and navigate the machine in a competent manner but he/she also has to be able to cope with unpredictable developments like mechanical failure, bad weather etc. on his/her own and without advice from other sources.
