Morgan McGovert, 9 Day IFR "Knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly instructors. The flight training devices (simulators) at California Airways are a tremendous advantage over instrument training in the airplane only. I was able to become proficient in flying instrument procedures, including using the Garmin 430, prior to flying in the airplane...a great time/money saver! By the end of the second week, I had the necessary knowledge and skills to be a safe instrument private pilot and pass the checkride the first time!"
Vincenzo Puppo, 9 Day IFR
"I think the program works well and covers all of the areas. I had looked at such programs before and they are all very similar. I hadn't found any in NorCal area though, so that is a big advantage. Price seems right also.
See you out there
Vincenzo ...a now happy Instrument Pilot ! :-)"
