“In May 2016 we were privileged enough to attend the instrument training and multi engine conversion course under the guidance and instruction of Mr Robin Gibson. Not only were we impressed by his professional manner and willingness to coordinate an individually tailored training program specific to our respective experience levels, but also the calibre of his training.
His experience and humble ability to impart knowledge with patience and calm address was admirable. So too was his ability to acutely and accurately read and assess the level at which we should be encouraged to attain, and with his lead, and positive instruction the level and expectation we had of our own ability was surpassed. The entire training experience remains a career highlight and his influence has undoubtedly been a catalyst that has ignited career progression.“
