A hidden gem this place. Professional pilots, hard working and honest. They give you training suited to your needs and skills and make sure everything is done as quick as possible, and the overall atmosphere in the place is friendly and open. The planes are in good shape, well maintained and safe. I’d definitely go back and fly with them to build more of my float hours.
