I started my PPL course with CFC after I did my fam flight here. Since I was a kid I dreamed to fly a plane, and CFC made my dream come true! It's amazing to have such an awesome hobby at an awesome flight school!

Got my PPL here back in 2011 and the experience was wonderful. Well maintained aircraft, excellent instructors and friendly, knowledgeable dispatch staff. Anna did an excellent job of teaching and getting me through my exams in a fun, professional way. I hope to start flying with them again in the near future.

Anna is an amazing pilot. She brings her love of flight to every experience flying with her. It is hard to imagine a pilot who brings more confidence and ability to the cockpit. I always look forward to my time with her.

I've been flying with CFC for 15 years, and hope to continue doing so for many more. The beautiful, well-maintained aircraft fleet initially caught my eye, but the excellent instructors and professional staff are why I keep coming back. The owner, Peter, is a true gentleman and a joy to fly with, and Anna, the aerobatics instructor, took me for an inverted-looping-and-rolling flight that still makes me grin to think about!
