When I did my transition training I was doing circuits from the front seat.
Finally my instructor said " eventually you're going to have to fly it by yourself "
So he got out ... I left the circuit for the first time and flew for about an hour thinking if I bend it on my first landing I want to have enjoyed it for a while.
Landed it. No surprises. No issues. Went down the runway straight as an arrow.
Whenever it happens your first flight will be awesome. Enjoy. Looking forward to hearing about it!

And Bret also said,

Both of these comment remind me of my mentors advice, at least in part, as he sent me out on my first flight in my Pitts S1C. He of coarse went over my take-off and landings but in between he told me to take it out and just enjoy it for awhile before coming back for my first landing.

I believe it is indeed important to NOT forget to have FUN even in between periods of stress. Of coarse my Pitts was a proven aircraft recently flown, not a brand new E-AB. But even on my first flight in the Acroduster 2 with it's very fresh AWC , after an initial scan of the instruments and verifying trim and flight characteristics, I took a deep breath and looked around and simply enjoyed myself for a few minutes.......

That's what it's all about. Enjoy, you will likely only have a relative very few "first flights"

Again, ENJOY, HAVE FUN!

Jack

Yep, another example of "grossly over built"!
