    "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
