Dear John,

I just have to say a such massive THANK YOU for you always going above and beyond what normal people would do to always assist and make a plan to get me further. No matter what you are always willing to help and sacrifice your own time and money to further others. You are a group of far and few between people on this earth and I really appreciate all your help to get me where I am today.

Testimonial

Posted March 19th, 2018
I started my aviation journey with Helicopter Charter and training on the 1st of November 2017, and what an incredible journey it has been. I trained full time on the Savannah S, a light sport fixed wing aircraft. The plane is very basic and has very limited equipment, because of the limited amount of space, but I believe that’s why it is a fantastic training platform.

It builds a good foundation, because it teaches you to fly with your eyes outside the cockpit. The best aspect of the plane, by far, is its ability to handle strong crosswinds. John did a very good job to teach me from the start that bad weather makes good pilots, so it would usually be the case that we would be flying when the rest of the guys headed home, due to bad weather.

The experience at the flight school was special, because John and the rest of the staff would always go the extra mile to help you out. If the weather was bad during normal office hours, or by bad luck the airport was closed for training due to grass cutting, we would be flying at the crack of dawn before it got bad, or in the afternoons when everyone left. If I had questions before exams Kelvin and Robert would always be more than willing to help. And then there is Lourinda. The friendliest person you will ever meet. I think she can be a female version of Ice Man from Top Gun, because she is always calm under pressure.

I am very thankful for the start Helicopter Charter and Training gave me, because they gave me a good foundation to build on. The safe environment meant I could make mistakes, as student pilots do, without ever having any doubt of safety. Doing the NPL first also meant that I saved a considerable amount of money towards my PPL, which I could re-invest towards my CPL, and that helps a lot. I would definitely recommend this approach to anyone interested to become a pilot, but finds the cost of training to be an obstacle.

Thank You Helicopter Charter and Training, I will always be grateful for the opportunity!

Regards
Pieter Visser
