14 Day Private Pilot Course  / C172 with G1000

Hi Tony, John,

I just wanted to say thank you for the professional and educational experience that you provided through AFIT’s Private Pilot program!  I am still shocked that I was able to accomplish my PPL in 14 days!!!  I could not have done it without Tony’s expert coordination and John’s incredible instruction.  I really appreciated John’s teaching style and am grateful for how patient and insightful he is.  He was always able to communicate things to me in a way that I understood, and gave me helpful tips for how to apply what I was learning in a practical way.  While there was a lot to learn, I never felt behind and I always felt like I was getting the best instruction.  I had started trying to get my PPL a year ago with another flight school, but scheduling a plane and instructor after work was challenging, and the training felt so slow.  I only accomplished four hours of flying before I had to quit due to a hectic work schedule.  When I heard about AFIT, I knew this was the program for me.  It was definitely worth it to take two weeks off work and knock all of the training out in an accelerated manner. 

This was the perfect solution for me, and I am excited to come back and get my instrument rating!  I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is serious about becoming a pilot and wants to do so in a timely manner.  

Thanks again, and Blue Skies!
