My journey as a student pilot hasn’t been an easy one. Acadia College was my 4th school, searching for a fair and honest school that was genuinely interested in my success and not focused solely on money. I am so happy that I decided to attend Acadia College for my commercial pilot licence training. It wasn’t an easy decision as Acadia College was not located in my home province. I am pleased that I made the decision to move and attend this school. They genuinely care about me, my success, and my education.Back at the school I attended for my private pilot licence, I had completed86 hours of flying in 10 months. Whereas at Acadia, I was able to fly a total of 60 hours in 2 months! With high aircraft availability, I was allowed to book 2 flights per day to speed up my education. Which, in all honesty, was my main priority at the time.The instructor I was paired with was knowledgeable and caring. I had a hard time with a specific air maneuver due to a personal life experience that made me fearful of performing it. My instructor was there for me every step of the way. He went above and beyond in ensuring that I get over my fear and succeed at accomplishing the maneuver. He is the reason I graduated from the Commercial Pilot program.I am now working towards my Instructor rating to become a flight instructor. I want to be the reason my students succeed, just as my instructor was the reason for my success.Acadia truly feels like a family. Everyone helps each other succeed. You don’t need to pay for extra tutoring; simply come to school to study. All the students who are there that day and who are more advanced than you will all help you understand the material at hand. If the instructors aren’t busy, they will even offer help as you work on your ground school.Thank you to all of the Acadia Team for ensuring I succeed in this new chapter of my life.
