Testimonials My name is Julio and I hold both Canadian and Brazilian citizenship. Throughout my flight training GFT was by far the best school I have ever attended. Everything at GFT is GREAT from front desk staff to Evas pilots. Before joining GFT I was in two other school and the experience was just TERRIBLE, I left the two previous school because the mentality was "The instructors and the school were the customers, not the students". At GFT this was never the case, whatever I was promised during my visit to the school I ended up getting, perhaps even more, I got ride home almost every day. The school runs a family environment, for numerous time Pat white and Gordon Butt sat down with me and asked me about the school, about my learning progress, about Brazil. That only showed me how much they actually care about their students. The instructors were all excellent, always very attentive and always willing to teach whether I was their student or not. Thank you, Julio T. Mozer Julio T. Mozer
