14-Day Private Pilot Training Experience

Dear Tony,

I wanted to share my experience training with Oleg.  Oleg is a great instructor and a truly amazing pilot. I learned so much in such a short time, I didn’t even know it was possible but Oleg really supported me from start to finish. He pushed me, but also listened to me and pulled back when I was feeling overwhelmed. Even with the added stress of the California fires, Oleg adapted the training and made sure I got all my hours in. I really felt like his and my main goal, everyday for 14 days, was to get me to pass the exam. Fortunately, the hard work paid off in full and I am now a certified pilot.

It was tough to fit all the training and all my questions into 14 days since I had no background or experience in aviation before hand, but Oleg made it happen.

You’ve got a good instructor on your hands.
