Look no further!

“I have known David for over a year and we have done many hours of flying together. He put together a very rigorous and intensive course for my instrument rating and was extremely flexible regarding locations. Coming from a family of ATPs it was important for me to have instruction of the highest standards and I can say without doubt that David provides this.

For anyone looking to learn or to perfect their flying skills look no further.”
