Here are just a few comments from the thousands of people who have taken our courses...

Hello Bryan,

You and I have worked together many times to arrange CCG Aviation Egress training in the Western Region.  

This week my nephew was in a seaplane accident with my ex-husband (pilot) who took your Egress course a few years ago.  He believes the training he took from you saved their lives.  So, thanks from the bottom of my heart for you and what you do so well…I am deeply grateful.  

Best regards,

Miranda

Bryan,
 
The course was excellent. I will see you again in a couple years for sure to refresh and I will likely be sending people as well.  Anyone who will be flying my 206 will be going on the course. 
 
One note. As soon as I jumped into my 206 after the course I did my safety check and added a quick review of the door handles. Shockingly I know the copilot and after doors have the turn handle. I thought the same was of the pilot side. Not true! The pilot door is the old fold-Down handle that when inverted will be hard to unlatch. 
 
It is quite amazing how the mind works. I look at the copilot and passengers handles all the time so when I secure my door I'm not really thinking about what I am doing with it. I was so sure that all the doors were the same since I'm always looking at the others and when I'm securing the pilot door I'm usually leaving a dock in a rush so I don't think twice - I just lock the door. 
 
Anyways, having all these doors and all these different handles on a 206 is not good. I would have never appreciated the danger without your course. 
 
You have added a significant new layer to my threat and error manga event when operating the 206 amphibian. 
 
Thank you again and I have attached a couple pics of the doors and handles. In order: copilot door, rear door, pilot door.

Hi Bryan,
 
I am very happy that I was able to attend the corse, and also very happy that you came to Sudbury.
 
Thank you for the great information and knowledge you passed on, I feel that the course is excellent! Now that I have the training it's hard to believe that I flew this long with out it. 
 
Thanks

Just wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks to you and your fine staff, for the awesome training we received last April 16th. You have a very engaging personality, highly suitable to your task. I learned a tremendous amount of useful information on this subject. I missed the first time we utilzed your services some years ago, and now I really wish I wouldn't have. What I have come away with, is a really genuine feeling that at least now, I might have a fighting chance to escape should the worst occur. It is really very comforting to know that I am equipped with that knowledge, thanks to you and your staff. You can be sure, that I will recommend to all my colleauges, that they might also partake of your services at their earliest convenience.

Jane and Jeff Landriault
Jeff and I would like to thank you so much for a great day yesterday. As Someone who is new to the aviation scene I am very appreciative for all of the safety information as well as the training in the pool. Your calm and caring demeanor with personalized attention make all the difference. I hope and pray that I will never have to use any of my newly acquired knowledge and skills, but if I do I feel much more prepared to do so. I am also grateful for allowing me to join as a last minute entry into the class. We met a lot of great people. You should feel very proud of what you do in trying to pass on your knowledge and expertise to others. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours and hope our paths may cross again some day. Kindest Regards, Jane Landriault
