Yeah and if you listen to what Ron is yelling at you about during a ride there is no way to fail LOL. Prevented me from making a serious bonehead manouver during a ride. I belive his comment was "Are you sure you want to do that?"

Ron is great.

Peninsulair should really win this one as we actually care about our students.

Some of the rest of us do as well, but in a poll like this, the reality is that the one who puts out the highest number of satisfied customers will prevail, regardless of the percentages. Fun to watch, nonetheless. For those of us who are actually actively engaged in the industry, we see others who aren't even listed as the real champs. Vote on!!

Ottawa Aviation Services. They don't put up with lazy-ass pilots and they put out some quality students/instructors who actually get employed....Instructors know how to take care of the AC, not walk away after their flight...no white collar brats here. They (the owners) also help out folks along the way.
cheers.

Asking a pilot about what he thinks of Transport Canada, is like asking a fire hydrant what does he think about dogs.

No one would recommend Canadian Flight Centre any more. Since Ron Harcus left the new owner slacks on maintenance and is just after the money. He is the most immoral person, no wonder all of Rons staff left and won't even fly there themselves anymore. Sad the whole airport knows about it.
