Sam Ng

“I felt that learning about the basics of aviation and how a plane works before actually flying one was a good way to proceed, and important from a safety aspect. I’d recommend choosing LTF to complete the RPL theory course as the instructors are willing to give you the time you need to explain every aspect of the syllabus, and also offer additional classes if you are struggling with any individual topic.” Sam Ng From Hong Kong
