NOV 2008 Thanks for the list of practice sites. I took the test this morning (Saturday) and passed with a 87%. Woo-hoo!.Thanks. Jay Frittitta, Stevens Point, WI

OCT 2008 Hi Wanda, First things first, I got 52 (right) on the (Private Pilot) test last night. Thanks for all of your, and John’s, work this weekend. I guess I know more than I think because I still don’t know how I got 50 on the practice test and then 52 on the real thing….. I really enjoyed this weekend, and obviously the program worked since on my practice tests I did at home I was pretty consistently around 50%. Thanks to both of you again and I hope to fly to STE when I get my license this fall. Mark Lake, WI

OCT 2008 John passed his Private Pilot Knowledge Test Tuesday afternoon! John Morris, WI SEP 2008 I took the FAA exam on 9-10-08 at Madison and scored a 97%. After coming back home from the weekend course, I reviewed the material for a few days, and quizzed myself, and brushed up on doing the time, distance, route calculations. I went in with confidence, and was not surprised by any of the questions. The ones I missed are labeled as PLT014 and PLT366. I’m not sure which ones these are, but overall, I was very pleased. I definitely think the weekend ground course was the way to go, and I attribute my success to it. Thanks for putting on a great course. Jeremy Johnson, WI

SEP 2008 Wanda, I just got home back in Milwaukee after taking the written at Pearl Aviation. Eric Donaldson and I were the last ones to take the test. We both passed (the Private Pilot Knowledge Test), both got 7 wrong, I got 88%, which is fine with me. Thanks to you and John for the training this weekend. After all the time I’ve spent putting this off, I’m glad that I’ve got it done. I considered waiting a couple weeks to study some more on weight and balance, but now that it’s done, it’s a relief and I’m looking forward to flight training like I haven’t before. Thanks again. Brett Huston, WI

SEP 2008 Hi Wanda, I just took the private pilot test and passed!! I have just one quick question. Is there anything I need to do with the sheet they gave me once I finished?

SEP 2008 Wanda, Just a quick note to thank you for the private pilot class. I took the exam on Sunday night and passed with a 83%. I should have done better because I made three mistakes on easy questions that I remembered the answers the moment I walked out of the test. I think my brain was tired. In any event, the class was helpful and well done. Bob Dillman, WI

SEP 2008 Wanda, I took the written for the Instrument Rating last night and finished up about 11:00pm, I passed with flying colors.

APR 2008 Hi Wanda, Passed the IGI this afternoon – 82%, not quite what I was hoping for but a win is a win, as they say! A helicopter question and a few other misunderstandings crept in on the day. I did want to say that the list of numbers for the time, distance, speed calculations was very handy – saved a bunch of time there, plus the various other ‘key phrases’ you and John emphasized in the course enabled me to get the answer and move on without agonizing over the options. … onwards to figure out the FOI.

JAN 2008 Hi Steve! Thanks for the call announcing your new IFR rating! Steve Lehme, IA

JAN 2008 Dear Wanda and John: I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for all the hard work you both did for Steve and I on our Accelerated Instrument Course. I know that trying to put together a program for one student in a seven day course is alot work. You took on two at once. I found that you were very well prepared and dedicated to do what ever it would take to help us achieve our instrument rating. As in real world flying we had many unforseeable issues come upon us, (i.e. weather,icing,colds, etc) and yet you were able to stay focused on our goals. The skills that you taught me will be in my cockpit for the rest of my life. I know of no other flight school where the instructors would work 16 hours a day. Drive countless hours. Pick us up and drop us off at our hotel, be at my check ride for support and be just as excited as me when I passed. I feel that I am a better and safer pilot due to your program. I am looking forward to scheduling my commercial rating with Am I High. Thanks again. Joseph Dolph, Private Pilot..INSTRUMENT RATED. Joe Dolph, IA.

JAN 2008 Wanda, I just passed the Instrument Airplane with 97%! Thank you Am I High Aviation for motivating me to get the written done. The fast pace, energetic and packed weekend ground school was just what I needed. William Cox, Wisconsin

JAN 2008 Ms. Zuege — took the FAA test today and passed! The practice tests really helped! Thanks for the great instruction. I really enjoyed it! Steven Lang, WI
