It’s official! I have found my new home at Fischer Aviation and could not be more adamant and excited as I begin training with Tom. I find it amazing how things have come full circle. While I did not begin my training here, I will be staying to complete my private certificate. After coming from a flight club, it’s been a slight adjustment but I know Fischer is the right fit for me.
The story began over a year ago in November 2012 when I took my very first intro flight with Fischer Aviation, which I will never forget. I don’t think I spoke one word the entire time because I was literally speechless! While taking to the skies confirmed my love for flying, at the age of 16, I was not prepared to make such a major commitment. I put flight lessons on the back burner to let the winter pass, but come spring, I was desperate to take to the skies once more.
In May, I managed to join a flight club based out Morristown flying with a part time instructor. While lessons went well the first few months, I quickly began to experience ‘turbulence in paradise’. Between availability conflicts and a lack of communication, I decided to leave the club in March to finish training elsewhere. After struggling with inconsistent training, flying with a school is such a blessing. I wish I would have made the switch to Fischer Aviation a lot sooner!
Fischer has one thing most flight schools lack; a sense of home. I don’t know what draws me to Fischer, but it’s a comfortable and friendly environment. I more happy now than I have ever been before and I look forward to my lessons with Tom. His laid back teaching style is incredibly helpful and I always take a lot of valuable information away from my lessons.
