Awesome school, Staff is very friendly. The instructors know their job pretty good, you can ask and they will take the time to explain. I like the training package when I subscribed for three lessons, aircrafts are in good conditions and felt safe all the time.

Michael Vincent, we are so happy to have been able to be a part of your father's 74th birthday and that he was able to actually get his hands on the yoke and check this off his bucket list! Hopefully, we'll get to see him again in the air soon!
