 "I AM CLOSE TO FINISHING YOUR VIDEO SERIES ON IN-FLIGHT EMERGENCIES. I AM NOT SURPRISED THAT, AS USUAL, YOU DO NOT DISAPPOINT. YOUR PRESENTATION OF INFORMATION IS SUCCINCT AND EASY TO ABSORB. PLEASE GET IN CONTACT IF YOU ARE EVER IN ATLANTA." SINCERELY, WILEY ALLEN

"JUST FINISHED IN FLIGHT EMERGENCIES. BEEN FLYING FOR 21 YEARS RECREATIONALLY. VERY VALUABLE INFORMATION." DAVE HARTDORN

"I JUST WANTED TO TAKE A MOMENT TO EXTEND A "WELL DONE, SIR" ON YOUR IN-FLIGHT EMERGENCIES COURSE. I FOUND IT EXTREMELY HELPFUL AS A REFRESHER. I MIGHT ADD, I DID MANAGE TO PICK UP A FEW NEW POINTERS AS WELL. I HOLD A COM-SEL/IA AND FLY A MOONEY 201J. I HAVE ABOUT 2300 HRS TT. I'M BASED HERE IN THE FLATLANDS OF NJ AT 31E. AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR PRODUCING AN EXCELLENT COURSE." REGARDS, TOM STACKHOUSE MD

HI ROD, I BOUGHT YOUR COURSE, AND I'M ABSORBING IT SLOWLY (THAT'S THE KIND OF BRAIN I HAVE). IT'S MOST INSTRUCTIVE AND ENJOYABLE - THANK YOU. I HAVE LEARNED PLENTY, AND EXPECT THAT TO CONTINUE." MIKE RADOMSKY

AS A STUDENT PILOT, I'VE BEEN TRYING TO POSTPONE STUDYING WEATHER AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. UNTIL RECENTLY, METEOROLOGY FELT LIKE A BORING AND HARD TO LEARN SUBJECT. YOUR COURSE ON UNDERSTANDING WEATHER HAS DRAMATICALLY CHANGED HOW I FEEL ABOUT IT NOW. I AM, IN FACT, ENJOYING LEARNING EVERYTHING YOU'VE PRESENTED TO SO FAR (I'M ON SECTION 5). I EVEN CATCHING MYSELF LOOKING AT THE SKY AND CLOUDS NOW AND THEN. YOUR METHOD OF TEACHING MADE IT REALLY ENJOYABLE AND I WON'T HESITATE TO RECOMMEND THIS COURSE TO ANYONE.
CHEERS!,
