Clients Testimonials

Last week, I experienced the finest recurrent aviation training in my 18 years of flying. Although I have been unfortunate to have very talented instructors previously, Larry York’s focus on ensuring there is a total and systematic understanding of the airplanes before cranking an engine, for my money, sets a new standard.
