I’d be hard-pressed to believe there is a better PPG training program out there.

Awesome weather, great gear, and instructors who were knowledgable, patient, empathetic, and utterly passionate about aviation. The training was methodical, thorough, and rigorous. By the end, our class had developed a solid foundation on which to continue building our skills as pilots.

It’s difficult to describe how life-changing this journey was. It’s as visceral and liberating of an aerial experience as one could ever have. I’ve never felt anything like it. It was worth every second and penny and brought me into a sport and community that I expect to stay with for life.

Advice to incoming students: Get used to waking up early before arriving (6:30 AM EST was our normal start time), stretch a lot, and drink lots of water. Your body will thank you.
