I have had a little bit of time to “debrief” since finishing up my instrument training and I just wanted to take this time to say “Thank You” to you both!
Tony, your course setup is, in my opinion, the best way to earn your instrument ticket. Whether you are a busy professional or someone with lots of time on your hands, how can you argue against getting your ticket in only 10 days? It is a proven system that many people have successfully completed. I am no different than anyone else and yet those 10 days of instrument flying were all it took for me. And honestly, I found that it came easier to me than my 14 day PPL last fall.
In the last 7 months I have gone from not flying at all, to having my PPL, and now my instrument rating. I owe it all to AFIT and its accelerated flight training!
John, your instruction is top notch! What else can I say. You have taken me from someone with only a dream of flying, to a VFR pilot, and now to an instrument pilot. The freedom of flying that I now possess, I owe it all to you. AFIT sets the curriculum for the advanced training, but when it really gets down to it, the INSTRUCTOR is who makes this whole thing a success.
From the first day of our initial meeting for my PPL training I connected with your training style. Success with that initial meeting made me want to use you as my instructor for my instrument training. You did not let me down. I found that it came to me even easier than the PPL did. Something about the way that you mix it up, keeps it from becoming overwhelming. Of course, the regular joke kept the mood light for the 10 days as well.
Through our experiences together I have gained even more than I had originally sought. Not only can I fly through the clouds, but now I have a lifelong friend as well.
