That is a tough question, but I guess it must have been my first solo flight during flight training! Once you have demonstrated that you can control the aircraft and fly patterns at the airfield without crashing, it is time to fly without anybody else on board. You are ultimately responsible for everything and there is no teacher or instructor to help you out… It is similar to driving a car alone for the first time – exciting and frightening at the same time, only much more complicated and challenging!
Besides that I had many memorable flights. I had the chance to operate a couple of maiden flights on the Airbus A320 which was always a lot of fun (because you are flying, where no man flew before – or at least something like that) and there are many more flights on which I met great people or just enjoyed work so much that I will always remember them!
