I would like to recommend Ray Lind to anyone wishing to learn to fly. He has trained my 16 year old son to fly. If you are a parent considering flight training for your son or daughter you can be assured they will be professionally and safely trained by an outstanding instructor. Ray Lind has not only trained my son to the utmost standards but he has also instilled confidence and competence in him. Ray is always encouraging, patient, and will provide excellent and proficient skills in anyone that he trains. (Mary Butterfield, mother of Caleb Butterfield)
