What Our Clients Have To Say
I attended your Class 2 Upgrade course and wanted to let you know that I just completed my upgrade ride. Your course, and supporting materials, were instrumental in ensuring that I was thoroughly prepared to pass my test. The course provided tremendous insights into the role of the CFI, as well as the additional responsibilities of a supervising instructor. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone considering a Class 2 instructor upgrade/renewal flight test. Thank you kindly for putting together a great course.
Thank you once more for the day yesterday. It was everything I was looking for in getting me started down the road towards the Class 1. You imparted lots of information in your own inimitable way, clearly and effectively.
Michael is very knowledgeable in what he does and teaches. He has great organizational skills, is always prepared and goes beyond what is needed to ensure the satisfaction of his clients and the success of his operations.
Mike and Aviation Solutions are an effective organization for the planning and implementation of Aviation training courses, consistent with the training mandate and requirements of Transport Canada. Their Flight Instructor renewal courses are first-rate.
Through my 10 years of knowing Michael, he has always offered the utmost professionalism in every aviation venture. He is dependable, and gets the job done. I highly recommend his services and skills.
Michael Schuster is an excellent educator, makes the subject interesting, well organized and is a very good communicator. He has created a company to offer a service that would normally not be attempted by any but a very large school and has managed to use a combination of external and internal resources to create a very good product.
Michael is a true professional and that shows in the way he excels at doing good business. With Aviation Solutions, he provides a much better way to renew the flight instructor rating then just going through yet another flight test. His contribution to the field of flight training is among the best I’ve seen.
Thank you for being an awesome instructor… I greatly appreciate all the help and guidance you have given me!
Thank you for your help… Some of the best supervision I have had since I started my career as a pilot!!!
Aviation Solutions provided us with a first-rate SMS product. It is simple, scalable and was customized to our needs and budget. Their help in guiding us through the process means we don’t just have a manual, we have the understanding we need to make this program a success.
You are an excellent instructor and I will always appreciate your help. It has truly been a pleasure and a great privilege working with and learning from you.
Thank you for being such an awesome instructor. I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better instructor; it’s been such an amazing experience!
Thanks again! I appreciate that you taught me so much; you are the best instructor I’ve met.
Flight Instructor Refresher Course
I couldn’t have imagined a more thorough and complete refresher course. Not only did the familiar become more deeply informed, but also the areas I hadn’t had much fluency with came well reinforced. It was a balanced time of group work, workshop style discussion, and also community building with others in the profession. Above all it was an approachable style where everyone’s unique input was valued and worked with.
You have succeeded in attracting a powerhouse team of presenters who took the course to a high level of professionalism – both in terms of content and delivery. This well-crafted course was tremendously helpful to remind me personally of how much there is to learn – and how I need to stay in ‘learning mode’ – in order to be of maximum benefit to my students. You can’t put a value on that…
I have had no hesitation recommending Aviation Solutions to others for their instructor renewals. Credit to you for your expertise in facilitating this so successfully!
Excellent prep material! I found it not only challenging, but it’s breadth and scope was extremely useful in terms of refreshing some topics that had been relegated to the mental “backburner”. Good use of videos and reference material; well-integrated with the topics presented. The course pointed me to several good sites that I have bookmarked and will be sure to add to my flight instruction library.
Thank you for a fabulous and well put together program! One of the better refresher courses that I have attended over my many years of flying. I am impressed by the amount of work and organization that you have invested to be able to put yourself in the forefront of programs like this.
I have worked as a professional educator in one capacity or another for 15 years. I was very impressed with the skills and knowledge of all your presenters and know that many people will benefit from your hard work and high standards.
The course had much better info for me as an instructor than the one I was to, years ago, offered by Transport Canada. You have a great teaching style and I can see why you have come so far along in the industry so fast.
Thank you for the effort and great information that is put together in the online portion of the course. I found it really helpful, well presented, refreshing and adding a lot of valuable information and knowledge.
Mike is a very strong Class 1 flight instructor; his organizational skills are outstanding and he is always working to improve. He is honest and trustworthy. I highly endorse his instructor refresher workshop.
I really wanted to say thank you for a great course. To hear just a fraction of your experience and knowledge was very rewarding and inspiring. I’m glad I took the option for the course… It took a really different approach to a flight test. Very good background knowledge we will all be better pilots for.
I really enjoyed the online portion. Having not utilized my instructor rating much the past year, I found it to be very beneficial.
The content provided was very interesting and informative. Having taken other online refreshers, I was expecting a boring, cookie cutter and drawn out presentation. I was pleasantly surprised. Your course was very engaging, and not only was it an excellent review but I felt like I learned a lot as well. It has made me very excited for the 2 day course next week!
In my 20 years of instructing, this was the first refresher course I ever attended. I will be back for my next one as well. It was very well done and a great review. Bob and I debated several points so it allowed us to each have a great understanding of new or updated regs. There are always slight twists and turns. Great Job!
I found the course is very informative. I’ve been with my flight school for a long time and getting very comfortable with the detailed, sometimes sophistic, well-trimmed operational system. The refresher course serves as a good reminder of the vast, variable outside world. I will certainly recommend the course to my colleagues.
I knew it would be an interesting and challenging course, but you exceeded my expectations. The course was interactive with a variety of topics not addressed in general training. My only regret is that it’ll be 4 years before I’m “forced” to take the course again. I appreciate you and your team’s efforts to go above and beyond.
I wanted to say how much I am looking forward to the next two days. I love improving myself and found the online e-Fresher EXTREMELY helpful and effective in getting my head “tuned in”! You are an excellent presenter and I was impressed with the stature of the components in the e-Fresher.
I originally came here to simply renew my class three and hoped to learn a few things. What I left with was much more than I ever could have imagined possible in terms of new knowledge… much more beneficial than a renewal ride!
The enthusiasm of the presenters has been contagious. They brought a wealth of unique information.
A very interesting and very useful course; worth my investment.
A very good course… just as good, if not better than the TC refresher courses.
I really enjoyed the program. Mike takes the time to pass along his and his other presenters knowledge and experience to the class.
The program has a solid amount of information that is extremely useful. I am so glad to have it registered… it is worth every penny
I felt very comfortable in this learning environment; I never got the feeling that there were ‘dumb questions’
I haven’t been to a workshop or conference that had such better suited and well prepared presenters.
The handouts will be extremely useful and provide a fresh look at techniques I would like to apply.
The reference material in the e-Fresher (videos, external links, etc.) was really good!
Mike was very well versed in the material… he is an excellent presenter.
All of the presenters were excellent! Very professional and well prepared.
A good class size, a good mix of topics, and a good mix of instructor classes as well.
Frankly, I wish I had an instructor like Mike when I was a student. Everything was broken down and clearly explained.
Very useful material with enthusiastic and experienced instructors.
