What Others Are Saying...

Dear Ray,

Your checklist and guide for potential student pilots, current pilots looking to earn advanced certifications, and pilots seeking to purchase an aircraft is not only outstanding but essential reading.

As a recent student pilot and now certified Private Pilot, seeking to purchase my first plane, I can only say that I wish I had the checklist and guide before I began taking my first lesson. 

When I began my journey to become a private pilot, I attempted to do as much research as possible via the internet and local resources, prior to beginning my lessons.  However, I quickly discovered there was very limited information available and my local training centers were by their very nature, biased in their opinions and recommendations.

Your reference guide and checklist is exactly what I was looking for but could not find.  Your guide is comprehensive yet succinct.  It will arm any potential student pilot, pilot, or prospective aircraft buyer with the necessary information to ask the right questions!

We encourage you to get the REAL TRUTH about flight schools and the REAL COST of flying.

In the Personal Checklist and Guide, Captain Ray Brown shares from his many years of experience as a Master Flight Instructor and a professional pilot. He shares what it takes to get your pilot's license in the real world, the REAL COST, and equips you with the information and knowledge you need to avoid pitfalls and save thousands so that your flying adventure will be less stressful and more fun! We mean it when we say it is a MUST-READ before going to any flight school!

You can learn a lot from the AOPA and other national flight organizations, but you will NOT learn the real truth about flight schools and the real cost of flying. This is why it is so important to download this checklist and guide today and arm yourself with the facts you need to make an informed choice.
