I’m writing to convey how happy and appreciative I am to have finally obtained my long desired and coveted private pilot’s license!

Having trained previously (unsuccessfully I might add) with another school based out of Caldwell Airport in New Jersey, I know first hand the difference a proper program and instructor makes. And an experienced, skilled and dedicated instructor like Cholena was exactly what I needed. She spotted and worked with me on ironing out bad habits I had as a student pilot, and made sure that my progress was always on track. In the end I was not only able to pass the checkride; more importantly I felt I was able to pass it confidently as a safe and competent private pilot.

Thank you both Cholena and AFIT, and I’m looking forward to returning and getting my instrument certification!
