14-Day Private Pilot Training

Tony,

Flying was a dream for me from the age of 10, and that dream became a reality in just 14 days. All thanks to Tony from accelerated flight and instrument training. I would like to start off by thanking Tony who from the word “go” started to guide me through the whole process and was very patient with all the queries I put through before starting the program.  And upon receiving his advice and guidance I set off to fulfil my dreams.

As for my instructor Jason I really have no words, His unique ways of teaching and instructing, helped me get through the 14 days private pilots program. Apart from the flight training, I learned so much more from Jason, and if it was not for his added effort and persistence I don’t think I would have achieved a solo flight in 6 days and my private pilot certificate in just 14days.

It was such an honour and privilege to meet such wonderful people and fulfil my dreams through their tireless efforts and hard work. I aim to go back soon for my instrument and commercial rating and would recommend AFIT to all those who wish to take to the skies.

Kind Regards

14-Day Private Pilot Course

Tony,

Thank you for all your help with getting everything lined up, helping me to be informed, following up with me, and staging me for a perfect transition into flight instruction. It was stellar how on top of everything you are and how quickly you helped me to get this accomplished. Even during a month-long Government shutdown, you helped me stick to a timeline for success. The AFIT program has the right processes with the perfect people to help you achieve your goals.

John is a truly brilliant instructor and even better friend. It cannot be said enough how you helped me reach a level of proficiency as a pilot despite having international exterior challenges which delayed my original timeline. Life happens, and you lead the way for me to remain focused and adherent to the utmost level of professionalism to become part of the aviation community. Your approach of calm composure while giving insightful and witty instruction is a voice inside my head that I hope to never lose. Thank you.

Cheers,
Walter Mulflur

10-Day PPL Finish-Up Course

Hi Tony,

I just want to thank my instructor Ruben and AFIT for helping me get my private pilot certificate!

I have never thought I would accomplish this with 10 days. Although I have been flying in the Bay Area for the last one year, I have not yet solved. Within 2 days of flying with Ruben, I was not only able to solo but also be confident in my ability to control the aircraft. Before coming to training in Lincoln, I was worried about the weather because it was forecasted to rain. However, Ruben made the learning experience very smooth and taught me how to fly safely in weathers. During these 10 days, I spent 40 hours in the plane and also plenty of time studying the knowledge.

By the end of the training, Ruben has found me a DPE in Chico which is very hard to do because of DPE shortage in Norcal. Ruben has prepared me a lot for this check ride and everything went pretty smoothly. The weather on the day of check ride was not perfect but with the experience, I freshly gained from flying in those situations, I never get nervous or feel stressed. I would highly recommend Ruben and AFIT.

Best regards,
Ben Wu

My 14-Day Private Pilot Training

Andy is a great aviator, a great flight instructor and overall mentor. He’s very professional, has a wealth of experience as a pilot and teacher and is able to relay the concepts and the actual act of flying an airplane masterfully in the short amount of time given in this program. A teacher like Andy is essential to completing these two weeks successfully and he prepped me well and provided a good foundation for my flight training to come. While always on the task, concentrated and thorough, he’s always up for a joke or a story from his own experiences as a commercial pilot.

He understand the student’s needs, adds encouragement or constructive criticism when needed and always does so with respect and in a calm manner. I was also able to meet Andy’s family and was grateful to receive a very valuable lesson from his wife, an air traffic controller. I overall felt in really good hands and was looking forward to each and every day!”

It was a great experience and Andy’s voice and instructions will stay with me for the times to come. “More right rudder! Yes, that feels better!”

Thank you also for your quick responses and setting everything up for me with Andy. I appreciated your quick replies and having everything being arranged for me!

Cheers.

14-Day Private Pilot Training In MY Cessna T182T / G1000

I signed up with A.F.I.T. for my flight training while I was finishing up my ground school. Tony with A.F.I.T. was very helpful, always answered the phone, and spent time answering questions and entertaining curiosities. Tony also helped me purchase an aircraft through advice he was giving me.  He signed me up with Greg at their Lincoln California facility. Greg was amazing from the start at being very easy to get along with and helping me to start learning immediately. I have had two other CFI’s and neither of them compared to how well Greg was able to get me learning and learning fast from the start. Greg teaching style with this type of school is very well dialed in.  There were a lot of hard days with so much I was learning my brain was about to explode, LOL.  But what’s amazing, is his confidence through the whole thing kept me pushing and trusting and by checkride day I had no doubt, when halfway through this thing I thought there was no way.

I absolutely and highly recommend using A.F.I.T. and if you can Greg as your Instructor choice you’ll have no problems earning your Private Pilot License!    

It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. Thanks Guys.

14-Day PPL Training Course

Dear Tony,

I am writing to thank you and Ruben for all the help shown to me over the past few weeks. Ruben has been nothing short of wonderful as an instructor. From the day I arrived till the day I left, Ruben showed immense generosity and responsibility towards me. I enjoyed myself thoroughly.

I would recommend anyone interested in obtaining a PPL to join the AFIT program. It works!

Best regards,

My 14-Day Private Pilot Training

“Congratulations, you passed.” Those magical 3 words from the DPE were certainly made possible by my fantabulous instructor- mentor-friend, John and of course the training program by AFIT.

From the very first day that I enquired about the program, Tony had been nothing but responsive and helpful with all the administrative “hassles” for a foreign student like me. All the applications and bookings were done seamlessly with his guidance and the best thing from him was pairing me up with John.

John made learning to fly a pleasure. Kid you not, learning to fly from scratch was definitely stressful, but John was there with me, and for me every step of the way. His encouragement and eye for detail pushed me through all the way, especially when the going got tough. I am so blessed for his guidance, patience and most importantly friendship. I wouldn’t have been able to make it through if not for him.

Thank you once again John and Tony for making this possible!

Best Regards,

My Private Pilot Finish-Up Training

I came to AFIT with a healthy dose of transatlantic jetlag, a strict time schedule, and Tony made a miracle possible- he immediately matched me with an instructor who could help me achieve my goal. 

Once you get to know a bit more about John you quickly learn that he is in the business of “wow”ing you. It’s evident in the stories he may share about his success in every realm of life- he’s a man of passion and commitment toward his many talents. You too will develop admiration for his willingness and commitment to share his time and teaching skill with others.  He demands your best effort, he has infectious optimism- more than enough to trump a stubborn realist who arrived with an acute fear of crosswind landings. There were moments of doubt, but John kept me focused on the end state. He had enough belief in me for the both of us, and before long I was able to overcome my fear to enjoy flying again. John showed me that I have the capability to do more than tiptoe around complex airspace – because now I have successfully accomplished it solo and have earned my Private Pilot License.

I am convinced that I could not have completed this elsewhere. I am so grateful to John and to the AFIT team and highly recommend their training services.

Regards,

IFR Finish-Up Training

I live in the SF Bay Area, and I was struggling to schedule time with both instructors and a DPE to finish my IFR training and take the check ride.   As I researched different alternatives, the solution proposed by AFIT seemed the most appropriate: spend a few days in Lincoln, CA with a CFI and take the check ride at the end.  My instructor, Andy, was very pleasant, extremely knowledgeable, and spot on the small details that helped me pass the test.

This has been a very good experience.

Thanks and best regards

IFR Finish-Up course

After it took nearly a year to get my pilot’s license, I was looking for ways to compress the instrument training so that I could pursue my core mission – being able to fly family throughout the West coast. The AFIT team was able to schedule 8 days with me during a 2 month break that I had planned away from work. We were able to work through all of the requirements and get into training for the check ride. The AFITservice works hard to get an examiner scheduled for the last day and this is really essential with some examiners being delayed nearly 6 months. The training was done old school – a plane with two VORs, no DME, no GPS, no auto-pilot and this was great as it forces all of the core skills needed for being an instrument pilot. The transition to GPS and G1000 was simple since most of my private was done with those systems. Andy was attentive to the deficiencies that were in my training and tailored the curriculum to those needs. It’s now onto buying my own plane and getting endorsed for mountain flying and high performance!

Thanks AFIT
