Reason for visit: Flight Training

I recommend this flight school: No

Pros

Good instructor

Cons

No ELT or weight and balance for aircraft
VOR navigation only
No FAA examiner available for check ride outside of double the cost
Local examiners frown upon program
Lack of accountability

My Review of AFIT Accelerated Flight & Instrument Training:
My wife attended the course in Idaho. The aircraft was new to everyone on day one of training. It had no ELT, weight and balance and only VOR navigation. The local field had frequent inop lighting and made night flying more difficult. Local examiner available wanted double
The normal rate for checkride because he was the only game in town. Lack of accountability on company side when safety and quality concerns were expressed.

My Review of Harless Aviation:
BEWARE!!! Greg Harless is known as a alcoholic who has flown with students while under the influence, including not doing maintenance to FAA standards. Please proceed with caution! Gregg comes off as a super nice, pilot guy who knows what he is doing, but it is all a sham.

Modern & High Quality Aircraft fleet

My Review of Berichi Aviation:
I recently went with Charlie on a instructional tour down to Key West in their new Cirrus SR20 and had an AMAZING experience! We did multiple maneuvers and I have to say Charlie is a very safety-oriented yet fun instructor and gets my high recommendation.

Btw, I already know how to do my first lazy eight and 60 degree steep turn :)

My Review of Berichi Aviation:
I am TORONTO CANADA, I found BERICHI AVATION info online on Google search engine.

After enquiring with the owner Charlie Berichi last December 2018, I choose Berichi Aviation for my training, I came to Fort Lauderdale on Jan02,2019. I completed Instrument and Commercial training in 90 days.

About;
School has all brand new airplanes and experience instructors who are very professional and attain full knowledge about all aspects of the training. Especially Charlie Berichi mentored me through the training process.

If you want to finish your training on time with out any delays, I highly recommend Berichi Aviation, school management keeps close eyes on the student progress.

At last I would like to Thanks Charlie Berichi and David Scranton who helped me achieved my Aviation goals!

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.
