Thorough Instruction
Norm Rathje is very thorough and spends as much time on techniques as the student needs. I was most appreciative of Norm's classroom training and his many helpful classroom materials. Norm prepared me well for my oral and flight exams, both of which I passed on the first try.
Personal, One-on-one Training
Code 1 Flight Training has provided me with everything I need to tackle all the challenges of learning to fly an airplane, from one-on-one lessons on the ground, to practical training in the air. Norm and Allen are both truly passionate about what they do. They are eager to give back to the aviation community and prepare students young and old to take to the skies!
My Friends Love Them
I have four friends that have taken flight training or continuing aviation education from this group of gentlemen, and every one is now a proficient pilot who always speaks very highly of their experience at Code 1.
They Work Around Your Schedule
My work schedule wouldn't allow me to fly by appointment like the rest of the schools want, but Norm was very accommodating to my needs—when I could find time he would make time for me. I finally earned my ticket thanks to his patience. I can't thank him enough. You won't be disappointed with Code 1.
I Felt Comfortable The Whole Time
Norm Rathje's flight training was invaluable, especially the flexibility he showed by his willingness to adapt to my schedule and to fly into my airport even when it must have been inconvenient for him. His instructions, both on the ground and in the air, were very well explained and were always relevant to real-world scenarios. His instruction in preparing me for my flight test was spot-on, and I felt comfortable and in control the entire time. Overall, everything was terrific and I wouldn’t even dream of recommending anyone else to someone who is interested in becoming a pilot.  
I Felt Well Prepared
Thank you Norm. Norm Rathje is very good instructor and allows you to practice as much as you need. Norm's knowledge and encouragement enabled me to accomplish my dream of flying. I felt well prepared for my oral and flight exams. I highly recommend Code 1 Flight Training.
