After 25 years of having taken my first flying lesson and having carefully considered numerous training providers, I decided to use Andreas at Airspeed High’s services to get my Ultralight Permit, Passenger Carry Rating and Instructor Rating. Andreas is a knowledgeable and distinguished aviator, having previously served as a Canadian Armed Forces fighter pilot. But what really distinguishes him as an Ultralight Flight Instructor is his patience and positive energy that he brings to the training environment. Every training session was something to look forward to and a fruitful learning experience. His customer service attitude is to provide solutions to the student’s training needs. And as a training platform, he provides a pristine and meticulously maintained Challenger (AULA) Ultralight, which is one of the most popular types of ultralight aircraft in Canada due to its enjoyable flying characteristics and versatility. If you seek quality, positive training to fly ultralights or type familiarization training for the Challenger, I highly recommend Andreas.
If you have always wanted to fly a plane but haven't been able to afford it Ultralight flying is the way to go, Airspeed High is absolutely wonderful, very professional, knowledgeable and accommodating. Would recommend to anyone! Andreas is a wonderful teacher, very good at explaining the correct way to do things and helping you retain them.
- As a recently minted Cessna pilot I was looking to lower my costs and try ultralights. After checking out several operators I found Andreas and could not be happier, his professionalism and attention to detail is better than normally found in GA flight schools. The added bonus of flying from a small, friendly airpark like Courtenay should not be overlooked. It is a much calmer experience than flying from a busy, towered airport! Beware, not all ultralight schools are created equally and this one is by far the best that I have come across, so much so that I make regular trips from the mainland! Lastly Andreas keeps his Challenger aircraft in much better condition than is required by the regs!
