Students about the training team
David put me in a tailwheel for a few lessons pre-solo and it really helped me get the feel for the round-out and flare – so much so that the next time I got in a C-172 I was finally able to solo! David is very patient and I always feel safe and well-prepared when flying with him.
I worked with David to get my instrument rating. I could not have asked for someone more knowledgeable and insightful. He has a deep understanding of what is required not only to obtain the rating, but more importantly to fly safely and with confidence. His calm demeanor and steady personality are all too-lacking in today’s day and age.
After 30 years as a pilot, I decided to get my tailwheel endorsement with Next Level Aviation. David is one of the best instructors I’ve had the privilege of flying with. His attention to detail and precision is second to none. He’s a wealth of knowledge teaching little tricks that you won’t learn anywhere else. For example, turning the base you should announce “Gear down” as a reminder to yourself and to anyone on the ground who might hear the radio call and say, “Hey your gear isn’t down.” This is good practice no matter whether you’re in a retractable gear aircraft or not. I could give a hundred other examples like this. The end result is I was able to complete my tailwheel endorsement in record time and I finally feel confident in the aircraft. I look forward to my next lessons with David. Thanks for making this possible.
