My 14-Day Private Pilot Training

I came all the way from Canada to do this program out in Lincoln, California. From even before I started everyone was super helpful and quick to respond to any questions and concerns I had. The AFIT PPL course was definitely one of the most involved and intense things I’ve done in my life. But it was 100% worth it. With little to no prior flight experience or knowledge, two weeks later I’m fully capable, knowledgeable and comfortable to fly safely and legally lol. I had the pleasure of being put with Tyler, a very friendly, smart and great instructor. He wouldn’t hesitate to take extra time out of his day to spend longer time to help me fly or help me understand something I couldn’t quite grasp. He really went above and beyond anything I would have expected from an instructor. He was able to explain complex subjects and instructions in a simple, easy to understand way and always had an answer to every question I had. By the time the check ride day came around I was definitely nervous, but I felt ready because of all the great training that I had.

I’m beyond happy I got put with Tyler but also every other instructor there was super kind and supportive. It was an amazing community that just seems like a big group of friends more than anything else. I still got a lot more positive things to say but looking at all I’ve written out so far I think it might be getting to long haha. The point is, if you’re thinking about getting your pilots license in a timely manner and looking at this place, don’t hesitate. It’s 100% worth it.

Thank you to Tyler and the whole Lincoln community for making this an amazing and unforgettable experience.
