“I just recently became a Canadian Private Pilot at the age of 43 all thanks to Future Air. The need for flexibility around my working and family life schedule was of the utmost importance. However, all of the instructors and staff were very accommodating to this need and it was never an issue. Most importantly they made the learning fun. Thanks Future Air for fulfilling a lifelong dream.
