Testimonials

The Chief Instructor Darren was very helpful, knowledgeable and approachable and it was a pleasure to be mentored through the whole of the theory videos and assessment by such a great teacher and instructor who also has a great sense of humour.

The other trainers Sonya and Heather were also very helpful and it was a pleasure to have them watching , instructing and assessing our flying skills when the weather actually permitted us the opportunity to take flight.

This will be a life changing event for myself and with the ReOC unit now underway it will hopefully open the door to start my way in the ever expanding world of multi-rotor opportunities.

I would also like to thank and mention that Nigel was my first contact with the Ripper Academy and was always prompt to reply to messages and calls and was very helpful.

I would Highly recommend the Ripper Academy to anyone with an interest in becoming certified as a pilot and feel honoured to be part of the Ripper team of students.

Many thanks again to all those involved with the course.
