“I thoroughly enjoyed my initial experience today in the Diamond Star DA40 / G1000 glass panel. My flight instructor was excellent. I am looking forward to finishing my flying time tomorrow and would not hesitate to pursue additional training with your company or recommend this experience to friends.” — Art Haller, B.S., B.A., M.Ed., M.B.A., J.D. Commercial Pilot, ASEL&S, Glider, Hot Air Balloon, Instrument Major, Civil Air Patrol

“I am writing in reference to my recent experience with ATP’s IPC course in the DA-40 with the G-1000. ATP’s instructor clearly and competently guided me through the IPC by tailoring the review to my skill level while keeping it fun and practical. I really learned a lot and feel much more competent as an instrument pilot. I have already referred some of my friends to ATP for their training! I will be seeing ATP again soon for the ATP written, MEI add-on and RJ introduction. — Derek Lott

“As I settle back into my normal routine here in Denver, I wanted to write and extend my gratitude to you, Chris Schaffer, and the entire ATP Phoenix team. Chris is an excellent instructor. I am amazed at how prepared I was for the Instrument check ride after only two weeks of training. In addition, special thanks to the maintenance team who spent their Saturday night rebuilding the DA40's alternator so I could stay on schedule and complete the program in 15 days. I won't hesitate to recommend ATP to my friends and colleagues, and look forward to visiting Phoenix again for my future training needs. Thanks!” — Jeff Gingras
