After many mornings of ground lessons, days of leaning out the door looking at the skid, hook shot after hook shot, I finished the course with the ability and confidence to actually jump into the commercial world of flying external loads. Working with the Volo Mission team was a pleasure and the 10-day course was the most humbling and rewarding aviation experience I have had.”
