While working on my private pilot certificate I had the opportunity to train with David Thompson. David exhibited a genuine passion and enthusiasm for professional flight instruction, which carried over into his instruction. Attaining a private pilot certificate is hard work and sometimes a bit overwhelming but David's calm demeanor and sense of humor always made flights relaxed and enjoyable. His vast knowledge of aviation is always at your disposal. He always has time to make sure you understand all aspects of your training and never become disconnected or lost. There are many good flight instructors in aviation but few exhibit the passion, enthusiasm, knowledge, and professionalism that David has.
