PPL Finish-Up, IFR and Commercial Training / KLHM

Tony,

“I am so happy I found AFIT. I was tired of learning to fly one or two hours a week from instructors who simply wanted to build time and apply to the airlines. Not at AFIT. With Ruben, I got an exceptionally experienced CFII who would fly 6+ hours a day if I needed it. As a Helicopter ATP coming out of the Army, I needed an instructor who could tailor lesson plans to get me ready for FAA check rides. Ruben was able to zero in on my weak areas and get me my private, instrument, and commercial licenses. No other instructor at a typical school would have worked as hard as Ruben to train me at the level he did. With AFIT you’re learning from instructors who take your training as seriously as you do. “

I’m still in disbelief! Thanks for everything Tony

Best,

Instrument Finish-Up and 6-Day Commercial Course / KLHM

I would just like to say a few words about my experience with AFIT. First and foremost, the program itself is top-notch and provides such a valuable service that may not be found anywhere else. From the first inquiry, to signing up for the courses, to arriving in Lincoln, the communication was great and everything was laid out in a very well structured plan that made it easy to understand what would be taking place.

As for my instructor, Paul, I can’t express how great of an instructor he is and how his knowledge truly helped me understand the concepts and grasp an understanding of what I needed to know in order to be successful with my check rides. He took the time to go through all the details, and made sure every topic was covered, that way I had a good knowledge of the topics I was studying. Again, Paul was an amazing instructor and a huge factor in my success.

Overall, my experience with AFIT was one that will be memorable and led me to gaining a better knowledge that will help make me a better pilot. The instructors are dedicated to their students and want them to succeed, which makes the stressful process turn into one that is fun and enjoyable. I would 100% recommend AFIT to anyone who is looking for training, and I hope to work with these fine people again sometime in the future.

Thank you,

10-Day IFR Training Course KVNY

I had a really positive experience with Abe and AFIT. Abe and Tony were very clear about what I needed to do to prepare and they did exactly what they said they were going to do. Abe was an extremely professional and friendly CFI. We flew every day and he consistently put me at ease and helped me focus on the areas where I could improve the most. The examiner was scheduled at the end of our training and I passed my check ride on my first try. LA is a busy ATC environment and after 10 days and a check ride under the hood, I really do feel prepared to fly IFR. I thought it would take years to get my instrument rating, but I got it in 10 days with AFIT, on time and under budget.

I can endorse AFIT and Abe Milad without reservation.

10-Day IFR Training / KLHM

Hey Tony. Sorry for the delayed email. I just want to take a moment and thank AFIT, Mike and my DPE Karen Kalishek for helping me obtain my IFR rating. Mike is a dedicated top notch Professional. AFIT was intense and Mike’s commitment to see me through was extraordinary. I can’t thank Mike enough for all that he did for me throughout this training. Mike was very patient, forgiving and demanding of me throughout the AFIT process.

Sincerely,

David S Lamb.

14-Day Private Pilot Training Course

Hi, Hope you’re doing well.  I wanted to thank you for the training.  First off, you did a great job both teaching and listening.  You were able to hear my questions and turn those into lesson plans that focused on what I needed to know.  The whole experience looking back is kind of surreal.  Everything that could’ve happened, did :) and I’m sure it made me a better pilot.  The course was fast but I felt prepared for the check ride.  The only thing I wasn’t ready for were those 25kt gusts but you can’t control the weather. Thanks.

Fly safe,

14-Day Private Pilot Training KLHM

AFIT thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. Paul is such an amazing teacher. His work ethic and dedication to making me a great pilot was readily apparent.  We trained so intensely and spent such an immense time together over just 14 days.  It was truly an immersion experience.  I now view Anthony as a mentor and friend.  Words cannot convey my appreciation of his dedication. 

I can’t wait to see him again for IFR training. 

Yours truly,

Brett Burnett.

My 14-Day Private Pilot Course KVNY

Hi Tony,

I had a fantastic experience learning to fly with Abe in Van Nuys. I still can’t believe that I was able to go from zero previous flight experience to soloing and earning my PPL in only two weeks! Abe is a talented and patient instructor with a great sense of humor who made long days of flying a ton of fun. Abe was willing to do whatever it took including spending extra hours to get me ready for my checkride. The Van Nuys airport was a great base for training as the busy airspace gave me lots of opportunity to practice my comms and get comfortable in crowded airspace. I’m a huge proponent of the condensed AFIT approach where each day built on and reinforced skills from prior days, particularly for people who have a busy schedule that could make it difficult to consistently log instruction/flight hours.

Thanks,

My 14-Day Private Pilot Training KLHM

Hi Tony,

The accelerated training with Andy was a great experience that “flew” by. I started the program with zero hours of flight experience and without having ever even been in a small aircraft. During the first couple days of the program there is a lot of information to take in, but by the time Andy gave me the go ahead for the first solo I felt very comfortable and safe in the plane. Andy was very laid back and easy to learn from.

After receiving my private pilots license and heading back home, I took a checkout ride for a rental aircraft at my local airport. The instructors commented that my flying skills were great.

Thank you..

14-Day Private Pilot Training  KLHM

Tony,

I want you to know how impressed I am with this program. From my first conversation with you until the very end, I felt supported and knew my success was a priority. I really owe all my thanks to my instructor Mike P.  Teaching someone to fly and all the other knowledge needed in 2 weeks is an art, and Mike has it dialed.  He knows when to push, but also knows when you need a good laugh to loosen you up.

I’m now a pilot and I owe it to this program!

Thank you

10-Day Instrument Training

It was a great pleasure for me to work with Ruben on obtaining my instrument rating. This was the second year in a row that I worked with Ruben after completing my private training with him as well. To get me ready for the instrument check ride we had a lot of work to do, and I could not have been more confident when the day of the check ride came along. Both check rides I have done after training with Ruben were first time passes, and that speaks to his skills as an instructor.

After last year I said that I would highly recommend Ruben to anyone, and I completely stand by that. He is a great instructor, and a great guy to spend all day around the airport with.

Thanks again,,

10-Day Instrument Training

The AFIT program for Instrument rating is a great program. I had my doubts from the beginning about being able to complete the course within such a tight timeframe. It’s a lot work in 10 days, but totally achievable. I highly recommend AFIT for motivated pilots who want to get their training and get flying.

Mike is an awesome instructor. Mike is not your typical CFII. His expertise in understanding how people learn and comprehend complex material allows him to tailor his lessons to your learning abilities. Mike also has a great personality and is full of useful stories from his 30 years in aviation. So, spending 8 to 10 hour days in a small airplane with Mike was an enjoyable experience.

Kind regards,
