I will never forget the moment when I passed my solo-check and my instructor sent me for my first solo flight. It was truly a dream come true. LTF is the best place to study your RPL because they have an excellent aircraft fleet and the amazing instructors provide constant support and training advice, pushing your academic progress forward.” – Joben Rajan From India
