Thank for taking me to Sedona
Hi John & Martha - You folks are awesome. Not only I enjoyed your 1st class teaching; but you took me a student pilot with you to Sedona, AZ all the way. Your inputs and advice along the way are great and I would be watching this video over and over again until I feel comfortable for long cross country flights like this one. Thank you again for your teaching and investments in many students all over the world.
