INSTRUCTOR REVIEWS:

“I just wanted to reach out and say what a wonderful job John did working with our students here. Sadly, the weather did not work in our favor, but John did. He was amazing. All of the students gave us very positive feedback about his professionalism, the amount of time and knowledge he shared, and overall, what a great guy he was with them. As DZO's we would also like to add, that John was an excellent representative of your company. He strongly believes and has a passion for what he is teaching and his interactions with us were nothing but excellent. He is a great ambassador for your company and I feel that this should be relayed to the owners. We would most definitely love to work with him again and will be reaching out as the need arises in the future.”

“It was a pleasure working with John, super professional and positive. John was very approachable and it looked like he really cared and was excited! He stayed with us all day long, from 8 in the morning and after sunset. He brought quality to the event. It shows that he has a desire to teach and passion for Canopy Piloting and the sport as a whole. He saw everything and everyone and had something to give to all levels of experience in the group. Thanks again for everything and hope working with you more in the future.”
