Flight Lesson of Another Kind!

"Look what I'm doing! 
I'm using your book in my classes!"
Santiago, Susan, and Ignacio
"Santiago on my left and Ignacio on my right are beginning their career in aviation and they are also studying English as they know this is elementary to be able to start flying in an airline. Both their fathers are airline pilots in Argentina and so these boys want to follow their fathers' steps.

Santiago and Ignacio have just logged 200 hours. Their English is basic and what they need most right now is to gain fluency before concentrating on air communication. So what can be better than read "Flight to Success" and learn about life while improving the language? We have just read and discussed the Introduction and Chapter 1. They are fascinated and they already find that your book reflects a lot of things they or their parents have already lived.

Once again thank you for such a wonderful book and I invite foreign pilots to read your book. If they can manage on their own, without help, it means they have a good level of English to fly and communicate without problems as well as the possibility of having a good read!"

Best wishes,
Communication is the essence of safety in the aviation world... and Susan Lagier is teaching pilots to become proficient in English! 
What a great surprise to see she is using
in her classes. 
Now her students can learn tips for life success, as well as master the English language. 
Thank you Susan!!  
And best of success in your aviation careers
Santiago and Ignacio!
Enjoy the Journey!
