Colin Downie, a CFI-RH & FITS SBT Facilitator states, “As a direct result of the C&E Seminar, my own understanding of several subjects has been greatly enhanced and my 'safe pilot mentality' has evolved to another level entirely which can only be a great thing for me and the person that I am training. I now teach subjects like the HV diagram, Density Altitude, Autorotations and cross country flights (to name only a few) with a refreshing new perspective that I can clearly see is safer, wiser and contributing to the smarter pilot mentality of the person that I am teaching and the helicopter training system as a whole. Attending the C&E Seminar got me hired in Houston!”
