Having been absent from flying for more than 25 years, I took a fun flight over San Diego with Shane Terpstra of High Flight Aviation in July, 2014 and instantly caught the bug again. After the flight I sat with Shane and established a plan to complete my Private Pilot certification. Shane was very accommodating and flexible to my schedule, facilitating many a 6am lesson before work, weather permitting. Within a few short months I had achieved my goal.
In addition, Shane and HF Aviation were extremely competitive on cost and working through PlusOne I was able to achieve my PPL goal for far less than the PPL factories nearby, without compromising on quality. Shane is one of the best CFIs in San Diego. If you want a CFI that is detail-oriented and teaches safety in all techniques, and lessons on how to do it right, that you will remember way beyond your check ride, Shane is the right CFI. Shane breaks it down to explain the fundamentals of why, and why it is so important as pilot-in-command. His tuition is very engaging and professional; his short field landing technique alone enabled me to nail it first time. I would highly recommend Shane Terpstra and HF Aviation to anyone looking to achieve their lifelong goals, or for additional ratings and aircraft checkouts. --Paul Shew
