It’s been over 20 years since I graduated from flight school in Gander (GFT). To this day, I look back with many fond memories of my time spent there. The staff and my colleagues truly became a family. They taught me the meaning of hard work, perseverance and determination. They provided me with the initial building blocks and industry contacts needed to start a successful flying career. Today, I have logged nearly 14,000 hours in the sky, as an Airline Training Captain and Check Pilot. Friendships made then, are those that still hold true today.”
