Words From Former Students
Just over three weeks from the time she started, Sarah was able to pass her checkride and go back home with a new Private Pilot’s license! It was great having her out with us and we hope to see her visit again for the two week IFR course. Happy flying Sarah!
“My wife knew that I had always wanted to be a pilot, and bought me an introductory flight at Pacific Skies Aviation for my birthday. That flight was awesome: My instructor worked the radios and the rudder and all I had to worry about was the yoke, which is hands-down the best part of flying. That old part of me that had always wanted to be a pilot was completely reawakened.” - Colin
“I started my flight training in another state and when I had to move to Los Angeles, I was certain that I’d have to start again from square one. Pacific Skies made the transition easy and has helped me come a long way towards achieving all of my goals.”
