Thanks Ben,
That sounds good. We can talk more about it when my starter package is over.
The handbook is a really good resource, I have been reading a lot of it. I can definitely tell that you hold it in high regard, as I have noticed a lot of the procedures in the book are similar to what you did with me (positive transfer of controls, calling out "clear" before engine start, figuring out the offset from the horizon when looking at the nose, etc) I started a system where I bought myself a big notebook, and am using it to take notes while reading. I have a section of the book devoted to a summary of my flights (what we covered, how I felt I did, how I could do better, and input from your debrief). The other section is for notes from the handbook that I read based on the syllabus.

I am really excited to learn as much as I can. See you soon.

Hello David,

Just a quick email to express my happiness with today's (first) lesson, coached by John.

John was everything I was hoping for: detailed, courteous, calm, patient (for my many questions) and made it a memorable experience. Please make sure to share my comments with him, and to recognize him as per your company's policy.

I will be back.

I really enjoyed the lesson. Joe was awesome, he really got me interested
in learning more. I am looking to continue lessons in the near future. My
situation right now doesn't allow me to do it every week, but i hope to
casually continue and build enough knowledge and experience to eventually
get a license.


Some other past comments...

Hi Ben,
The introductory lesson was fantastic and John was wonderful. I'm very interested in taking another lesson, probably in August. Can you tell me the cost for the second lesson? As soon as I get my August work schedule, I'll call to make the appointment.
And yes, I'd very much like to receive the free 6-month subscription to
AOPA's Flight Training Magazine. I don't think I selected the option to receive the magazine when I signed in. Thanks so much!

This was my dream come true! I have been waiting for this day since I was 5 years old. Adam, my instructor was excellent. I couldn't have had a better experience. Thank you guys soo much.
I'm seriously considering getting my license now, can you give me some info on your courses?

I had a great experience with the intro flying lessons especially with Joe
my instructor which I felt very comfortable with.
I hope I can continue with more lessons when it becomes affordable for me.
Thanks again
