Review for Able Flight, Chapel Hill, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Before I heard about Able Flight, it was difficult for me to start my flight training because I'm Deaf with no flight experience that local Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) were not willing to train me to become a pilot. It was a struggle, because I want to be a professional pilot that I tried to get closer to a pilot job. After earning a sport pilot certificate with the help of Able Flight, it is easier to find a CFI to start my flight training for higher pilot certificates and ratings because CFIs now see that I am ABLE to fly even I'm Deaf.

Able Flight had provided a lot for me that they and Purdue University found a CFI to train me to become a sport pilot as well as provided an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting service where I can understand instruction at pilot ground school better. My Able Flight classmates, instructors, and coordinators were so nice and helpful and can communicate with each other other ways when the interpreter wasn't around. Able Flight provided everything I needed to finally become a pilot, which was very nice. Around the end of six weeks of intense sport pilot flight training at Purdue University to ensure Able Flight student pilots become a confident, competent, and safe pilot, I do feel confident to get on the airplane and fly without my CFI.

Able Flight is a great organization that changes people's life as well as it had with mine seeing that I can really be a pilot and looking forward to advancing my pilot certificates and ratings. I'm currently training to be a private pilot, getting closer to be an airline transport pilot. I still remember the first take off during my flight training with my CFI that I smiled for finally to start the flight training as well as I smiled after my last landing during my first solo flight realizing that I did it!
