“Dear Future Air-viator:
For those of us with a passion for aviation, the thought of earning our wings and becoming a pilot is an ambition and an adventure that we have all surely contemplated at one time or another. However, the task is at best daunting to say the least. Full of challenges and hurdles to overcome, and at times, as in my own experience, sometimes seemingly unsurpassable. Of course the end result is an achievement that is well worth the effort, I recommend it highly! And as a recent graduate of the PPL Program at Future Air in Collingwood Ontario, my best advice for anyone following this very same goal is, "Choose Your School Wisely" !!!
As an Elementary School Teacher I have had significant training and experience in accommodating student success; I can assure you that student achievement is hinged intently on instruction that is flexible, professional, accommodating and supportive. The staff and Instructors at Future Air demonstrate these qualities to a very high extent.”
