Thank you Phil for all the extra work and time you put in to assist me in completing my ATPL.

I never had the chance on Saturday afternoon to thank you for all of your help during the entire process of the Crew Course. You helped steer me in the right direction prior to the commencement of the course and were there to answer any questions during the course.
