When I first started there it blew me away how involved everybody was in helping every student there achieve their goals. I would have to say the best experience was the flight instructors.

Hello my name is Abdul Tukur, and I came to American Winds from my homeland of Nigeria.  I was unsure of what to expect when I came to America, but the uncertainty I had was eased by American Winds.  They made me feel welcomed from day one and took me in as part of the family.  The flight instructors have been great and really show a personal interest in helping me reach my goal of being a career pilot.
