After 20 years in the military I decided to continue my career as a professional aviator. As I transitioned out of the Army I was fortunate enough to be given an opportunity to fly with GoJet Airlines. They offered to pay for all my certifications to get me ready to fly with them. I did my research of all the Part 61 schools in my area and found that FlightGest has the right balance between the number of available aircraft and number of available and friendly Certified Flight Instructors. I liked FlightGest so much that I made a 1 hour and 20-minute commute to fly with them out of the beautiful Raleigh International Airport RDU. I was able to attain my Single Engine Land Instrument and Commercial rating as well as my Multiengine add on in 4 short months. This wouldn’t have been possible without my FlightGest family. Between the close relationship of ownership, instructors and the great maintenance personnel I accomplished all my goals in a very short period of time.
