Awesome guys to work with!
Bill and Norm at Code 1 Flight Training were awesome guys to work with. Bill is a great instructor with a wealth of knowledge and experience. He was very patient with me during all my training, and I am glad that I got to work with him. He stuck with me throughout my entire training to get me where I needed to be to pass my check ride.  I was grateful for the flexibility of their schedules and their availability to work with me on the weekends. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. If you are looking for flight training, I highly recommend the guys with Code 1!
