Manel Vila Sala
My name is Manel Vila. I am a commercial pilot from Barcelona and I did my ATR type rating in IFA.
The experience that I had during the course was very nice thanks to the professionalism that the Instructors and all the organisation have.
A part from that, they helped me a lot and were very resolutive in a problem that I had related with my licence and the competent authorities of my country (AESA).
Thanks to them, now I am flying happily the ATR.
Great from first to last day. Cmt. Mendonça passed on his knowledge to the students, which made me better prepared on many more levels than before. Cmt. Alvim was also very important in our learning. It all went very well, in a fantastic environment.
Days like today were only possible thanks to colleagues and friends who helped me in this path. My thanks goes to these few, precious friends, I was lucky enough to find along the way.
Stating the professionalism and support from all the elements of IFA would be little. If today, I am happy to fly as an Airline Pilot, I owe it to you all.
Motivated and skilled instructors.
Especially enjoyed the training provided by Capt Mendonça. He is very experienced and with great teaching skills. Also provided a calm and fun learning environment, which helped the learning greatly. It was a privilege receiving instruction from him.
