SYDNEY - An Australian man venturing into the skies for a first flying lesson has been forced to make an"amazing" solo landing after his instructor blacked out mid-flight.

The 30-something had issued a panicked mayday call from an altitude of 1,900 metres, after his instructor slumped onto his shoulder and could not be woken. He was instructed to maintain altitude and to make a pass above the runway to get a sense of the terrain and become more at ease. "I know this is really stressful. But you're going to do an amazing job and we're going to help you get down to the ground, OK?""You did it mate!" exclaimed the air traffic controller."Well done. That's amazing!"
