14-Day Private Pilot Course

Thank you both so much for helping me in a difficult position; because of AFIT I am now able to apply for the Reserves Pilot Board which meets at the end of the month.

I had a great time with the AFIT program. I was in a tough situation when I was forced to finish a PPL as a requirement for a program. All the flight schools in my area were booked and I was laughed at when I mentioned it needed to be done by the end of the next month. I was ridiculed and told by all 6 flight schools it would take at least 2 months to complete ground school alone.

Fast forward to the AFIT program; Tony was able to schedule me in very quickly and I was in Sacramento the next day from Seattle. I was blown away by the professionalism and ease of instruction by Andy. Andy is a phenomenal instructor with a lot of patience and has a hands off approach to teaching which allowed me to learn from my mistakes quickly.  I came in with 11 flying hours but no ground instruction, and the King’s online course provided by Tony helped me pass the knowledge test and prepare well for the checkride in under a week. Although the course was accelerated, I was not overwhelmed with the flight lessons and the curriculum created by Andy and Tony makes it easy for anyone to succeed.  Andy’s extensive flying experience means he gives tons of practical advice and can explain seemingly difficult concepts with ease. In the end, I was able to complete my checkride and have my Private Pilot Certificate in no time! Thank you AFIT for making this possible!
