"From the fall of 2007 to summer of 2008, I was a brand new student pilot working on my PPL out of Burlington. I really meshed well with Dennis’ instructional technique and calm demeanour, he had a very solid way of conveying what he was teaching and a strong experience level to back it up airborne. He has the sort of no-nonsense attitude and the ability to push student pilots for quality performance. Dennis was very important in providing the foundation of skills to help me be successful at aircrew selection, and helped me be competitive during undergraduate flying training."

"Dennis has taken me through a number of new aircraft configurations including tail wheel, floats and amphibious training. This has included type ratings on multiple types. His calm and casual instruction style makes it a low stress and easy environment to learn in"

“Dennis has a calm demeanor and reasoned approach to flight training. He drills things into your head without pushing you. After 20 years of flying VFR, I made the decision to get my instrument rating. It was hard and took way longer than it should have (my issue, not his) but Dennis was patient and thorough and was solely motivated to make me a better, safer pilot. He really enjoys his work and that shows! On top of being a great pilot and CFI, he’s a helluva nice guy and now someone I’m happy to call a friend. I’d be his wingman any day!”

A flight instructor having knowledge is very important but being able to convey that knowledge patiently and effectively is a talent. That talent translates to a priceless gift to the student of such an instructor. I am greatful to Dennis for that gift. Dennis was my instructor during my private and rental days. Years later, I now own a 210 Centurion and thankfully, Dennis is still my instructor – and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
