14-Day Private Pilot Training

The AFIT program was a perfect solution for me. Previously it took me 3 months to get 8.8 hours of flight time. During which every flight I had to relearn half of the previous information. I finally made flying a priority and was able to utilize AFIT and Andy’s help to achieve a life long dream of becoming a pilot.    

Andy and his family were nothing but kind and welcoming. Andy is a very knowledgeable and experience pilot, I have nothing but great things to say about my 2 weeks in Lincoln CA. While I was there, I was able to go from 8.8 hours that I previously had to 53.0 hours and a pilots license.

Andy’s teaching style allowed me to make my own mistakes and learn from them while remaining safe. He was very hands off the entire time, and with his instruction I was quickly able to gain confidence and solo within the first week I was there. The learning environment was very comfortable and I never felt talked down to, in fact questions and learning, why, instead of memorizing facts were encouraged.

I feel as though through my questioning and his very in depth answers, I got more of an education than what was required of just a private pilot. We covered how every system in the aircraft worked and why, the advantages of certain types of systems over newer or older systems and how to even perform some small maintenance tasks. (extremely interesting to me due to my military background in avionics maintenance).

I plan to use my flying experience to work towards becoming a military fighter pilot.

Thanks for putting on a fantastic program.
