He did an exceptional job from beginning to end, no doubt. Realize that at this point in training, he has likely accumulated approximately 25-35 total flight hours, only a handful of which were solo,
My short field landings were great; my soft field technique? No so much. Plus, I flew heavier Piper Archer versus this 2-seat 152, so I think I would've buried that nosewheel pretty good or cracked a main strut coming down hard on a soft grass field.
