“I just wanted to take the opportunity to provide you with some feedback about the courses you offer. As you know we had previously been delivering the theory in-house but this became increasingly difficult for us getting class sizes and rosters that accommodated the wide variety of customer requirements. We therefore elected to outsource our theory to your organisation. I have followed up with our students undertaking your various courses. This encompasses a variety of age groups and cultural backgrounds. The feedback has been exceptional. In fact one of our students remarked that the course was as enjoyable as the flying component. Additionally our students from non-English Speaking backgrounds commented that you have made it easy for them to understand. So great feedback from an array of students so thankyou for your exceptional course delivery.”

“The team at Ground Effect Aviation have proven themselves as the perfect complement to flying training within my organisation. As the Chief Flying Instructor and CASA Approved Testing Officer, I emphasise the value of sound aeronautical knowledge to all of my students and flight test candidates. When searching for viable business options for aviation theory, I decided to send a group of students to Ground Effect Aviation for an Instrument Rating course. The feedback the students provided me and the results they achieved on their exam left no doubt that I would send future students to the same place. Working closely with Ground Effect Aviation for more than 6 months now has brought me to the decision that all students enrolled for flying under my company AOC will be encouraged to study with them; it promotes a high level of knowledge, exposes the student to a wide variety of experiences that self-study could not suffice and most importantly they come back to me ‘flight test ready’ with their exams done. I have no hesitation recommending the services of Ground Effect Aviation to any flying school.”
