No

6.

Do you feel that student pilots should not solo until they have achieved certain milestones? FSANA has had some discussion with providers recently that indicate that there may be a desire, and greater safety achieved, to have students wait to solo until later in their training after more of the required dual experience requirements are completed. Please share your thoughts.

7.
What should the "solo" milestones be?
When a student has completed at least 20 hours of dual and the CFI has signed the student off for solo
When the student has completed the dual cross country experience requirements and the CFI has signed the student off for solo
When the student has completed dual cross country, night, and instrument training experience requirements for the private pilot certificate and the CFI has signed the student off for solo
Basic proficiency in the requirement maneuvers as currently required is enough
