"I wanted to thank you for the MEL training last week. You're a great instructor and it was a pleasure flying with you. If you ever need a reference let me know. I'd be happy to recommend you to anyone that wants to talk to me."
"Tom, your good company and gracious hospitality are deeply appreciated. Thank you for the training and making it enjoyable. I experienced again the pure joy of flying, touching the tree tops and landing on the water, being connected with Mother Nature."
"Tom thought I'd send you a quick email to say thanks again for the excellent mult-training I received this week. I rally enjoyed your instructing style and technique. You certainly have a great location to give instruction up there...really beautiful country. Bob [examiner] and I had a great flight as well... he's a real professional who seems to really enjoys what he does."
"Thanks again Tom. I got to say I had more fun flying than I have had in a long time. I guess the difference is that land plane flying for me is 99% being high in the air and 1% quickly climbing or descending from cruise to the runway. The seaplane was about 99% paying attention to the ground and water. I really loved to learn to do the low level stuff and getting used to the way trees look when you are descending over them at 50feet. That kind of ground contact flying is just something you rarely get to see and experience when flying into airports. You were right about the glassy takeoffs. They are an absolute blast. It reminded me of getting a catamaran or iceboat up on 1 hull or runner. I thought it felt great."
"Just a short note to say thanks you for a very enjoyable, if a little short, stay in Michigan. What a pretty location, perfect weather and what enormous fun! I know we all had a great time with you. I particularly like your style as an instructor-what was acceptable yesterday needs to be improved on today-it really works well, and even the check ride with Bob was fun, keep on pushing, it's a great technique. Thank you so much for making it so much fun, we had a blast."
"Thanks again for a wonderful weekend of flying. That was the most fun I have had in an airplane! Ever!"
"Tom just wanted to thank you again for getting me the ASES rating. I had a blast flying the Piper and learned a lot in a short order. You have a great location to fly even if the clouds were at 500ft."
"Thank you for all your help. I enjoyed flying with you and Bob [the examiner]."
"Thanks for the instruction and the fun weekend. I enjoyed it very much... So, I just wanted to say thank-you, and if I come across anyone needing multi-engine training, I'll shoot'em up your way! Thanks again!"
"Thanks again for helping me with my multi rating. I am very sure that what I learned from flying a twin will also help me in flying singe engine airplanes."
