Absolutely wonderful experience at LifeFlight. The facilities and the people delivering the service were outstanding. Namely Phil Head and Lisa Enander were extremely helpful and considerate. The coordination and organisation of the training program was seamless and training delivery was outstanding which helped and enabled me to successfully complete my training requirements. LifeFlight will be my go-to place for all my future training needs and requirements and is highly recommended.
Very well organised and presented course by LifeFlight. Phil Head and Jerome Guitton were brilliant instructors and were experts in their field. Thank you Phil for all the extra work and time you put in to assist me in completing my ATPL. LifeFlight Training Academy has friendly, helpful and dedicated people and that is what makes the difference between a good and excellent training organisation.
