Curt’s Comments

Well, I came down to camp, hang out with my brother-in-law, and take a few flights off the training hills. I don’t know what happened, It’s all a blur. I took one flight from the small training hill and the next thing I know I’m standing on the mountain looking at the LZ getting ready to launch my first solo flight. What a blast! (Don’t worry, he took more than one training hill flight before he cleared to fly from the mountain! – Editor)

I am super impressed with the level of professionalism of all the instructors as well as everyone I came in contact with at LMFP. You guys obviously love what you do. You made me feel very confident with my skills and progression toward solo from mountain.

I can’t wait to get back down to fly some more. (In fact, that is all I can think about)

Thank You

Very Sincerely,

Columbia City, IN
