My Review of Berichi Aviation:
I began my discovery flight with Berichi Aviation after my father completed his Biennial flight review. He has now started his instrument rating with their G1000 172 with flight instructor/owner Charlie. I am so happy to have been reintroduced into the world of flying, Charlie made it extremely easy for me to understand the operation given the little knowledge I have about flying. He educated me on all maneuvers we were going to do beforehand, and reminded me as we were executing so that I was able to understand what was happening during my flight. We flew over Fort Lauderdale beach, all the way down to Miami. The view was incredible, and the feeling of being in control was exhilarating. I highly recommend Charlie for beginners because he really provided me with comprehensive knowledge that I was able to understand given my flight background. Not only is Charlie great for beginners, he has shown my father how to be a better pilot and I love seeing how happy he is when he returns from a flight with Berichi Aviation.

I always felt safe, and briefed. Everyone at Berichi Aviation was extremely professional. I have flown before in Canada, and my experience of the flight school was less memorable. I still cannot stop talking about how much fun I had! They have glass cockpit airplanes all which were in impeccable condition, and added to my feeling of complete safety. For my flight we took out the Skyhawk C172SP and was G1000 equipped. This week we will be taking out the new StationAir G1000 NXI Turbo 6-seater for a day trip to Key West with Charlie, thankfully it’s air-conditioned!! I have invited friends along for the ride as I have the urge to share this experience with everyone!

Rating 5 across board/all areas. Charlie helped arrange flight/aircraft/instructor for out of town visit. Great informative, instructional checkout in clean, solid-flying 172 w/G1000; beautiful sunset flight over everglades, ended with RNAV27 approach FXE. Would rent again from Berichi and recommend to anyone. Great experience overall!

Pros

Both instructors are highly skilled, professional and safe.
Very friendly staff; it is well located (weather and city) and the aircrafts are clean, well maintained.

Cons


My Review of Berichi Aviation:
Annually, the Peruvian Air Force instructor pilots come to Berichi Aviation to complete thier recurrent Spin Training and Aerobatics Training. We completed the training in the Berichi Aviation 2006 Extra 300L. It is beautifully and well maintained aircraft.

We had a comprehensive briefing with the Owner CFI/CFI-I Charlie Berichi before our training commenced and Spanish Speaking FAA Aviation.
They also followed us during training with their G1000 172SP and used it as a chase plane for the filming of your training.

My Review of Berichi Aviation:
I cannot say enough positive things about Berichi Aviation. I’m currently working on my private pilot’s license with the owner, Charlie, and it’s been a great experience. The planes and FBO are beautiful and well-maintained, and the instructors are all incredibly friendly and, most importantly, incredibly knowledgeable. Charlie, in particular, is the perfect CFI. He provides helpful feedback while at the same time keeping your confidence high, which is critical in the early stages when everything basically sounds like Swahili. I’ve read other students’ accounts of the negative experiences they’ve had at other flight schools, and I wish nothing more for them than to find an instructor like Charlie. I know that I’m in great hands with him, and you will be, too, should you decide to advance your aviation career at Berichi Aviation.

There has been a number of discussions in the industry on the benefits and legitimacy of the Sport Pilot Certificate. I thought taking the time to spell out the differences between the Sport Pilot Certificate and the Private Pilot Certificate would help you in your training. With this information in a clear and concise place, it will help you choose which type of training is right for you to receive. Let’s first discuss what a Light Sport Aircraft is and then the established limitations of a Sport Pilot Certificate and how those limitations differ from the Private Pilot Certificate. We will then discuss the differences in training requirements and some additional information that you should be aware of.
