Different navigation systems are easy for him, and his pleasant personality makes it a joy to learn in the cockpit as well as the classroom. Most of his aircraft time is in the Cessna 172, B-55 Baron, and Cessna 310, but he also has time in the Piper Arrow and Cessna 421.

The overall experience was very enjoyable. Location was excellent as were facilities. Staff treated customers with respect and were very courteous. Supplying lunch during training was a nice “extra”. I am very thankful to have you guys nearby.
