14-Day Private Pilot Training

First of all, I want to say Oleg is an absolute legend. I didn’t come in with high expectations, but he totally blew me away. He’s super professional and knows exactly how to help me improve without making things complicated. He didn’t even need to take control of the plane much, but somehow managed to make me a better pilot. I think this is because he’s got tons of experience teaching and genuinely cares about his students’ success. We were totally on the same page throughout the training and I definitely felt like we were in this together.

What I also really appreciate about Oleg is that he keeps a straightforward approach and doesn’t overload you with unnecessary stuff. Right from day one, he focused on the essential knowledge and skills needed for the check ride. Not more, not less. It made prepping for the check ride so much easier compared to other flight schools. For me it’s been a bit of a slow ride with my previous training, dealing with all sorts of issues like scheduling problems, bad weather, and instructors who weren’t exactly the most dedicated. But I’m really happy I finally found an awesome instructor who made things progress quicker for me!

I am thankful for the fast-track training opportunity that AFIT offers, and I’m glad I jumped onboard. Tony is pleasant to work with and It’s been a smooth process signing up and getting everything in order. The 14-day accelerated training program won’t work for everyone. It’s intense, and you gotta be ready to work hard and stay 100% focused. But if you’re up for the challenge, I highly recommend Oleg as your instructor. Plus, Frankfort, Kentucky is an amazing place to learn to fly. The airport traffic is lighter, and the town itself is beautiful. I’ve got some great memories from there, and who knows, maybe I’ll go back someday for more flying.
