Cadet 1st Class Staci Rouse emerges enthusiastically from a T-53A trainer that she flew solo, marking a historic first for the Air Force Academy's powered flight program.

Cadet 1st Class Staci Rouse's sortie caps more than 12 months of hard work from several agencies, said Lt. Col. Bradley Oliver, the 557th Flying Training Squadron commander.

"We hope she is the first of many cadets to solo in this program," Oliver said.
