I successfully completed the IFR certification this week. Thanks for all your help in the training process. Due to some extraordinary work pressures of my law practice, Mark and I had to work with an extremely compact schedule to complete both the instrument written exam and the practical training while he was here. Mark graciously took on the challenge and provided outstanding training and guidance throughout the instrument training process. Mark conducted the instrument training with an extremely high level of professional competence, tailoring the training process to both my personal situation and my personal training needs. Southern California is an extremely congested and complex training ground for instrument construction. Mark was able to craft training exercises in this real-world context that well prepared me to fly safely and competently in the Southern California instrument environment. My hat is off to Mark for a job very well done.
