"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
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
