Letter from a former student
      04/27/14 11:00 AM

Some days you get a big reward for your efforts. Here is part of a letter I received yesterday from a young woman who was 17 when she started training with me:

Quote:

The year that I spent as your student was one of the most rewarding years of my pilot career. You taught me everything that I needed not only to pass my private checkride but to make smart and safe choices while I fly for the rest of my life.... Now having my commercial ratings, I am able to reflect on my nearly 4 years as a pilot and appreciate all the time I spent out at the airport with you. If it were not for your patience and dedication with my training I am not sure i would be sitting where I am today. You showed me that hard work does pay off and that flying can be one of the most rewarding careers. Thank you for believing in me and helping me work towards my dream.




In my reply, I suggested she pay it forward when the opportunity presents itself.
