Jeff-Lilly-Testimonial

As a recently minted private pilot, I would like to comment on the top-notch quality of service and support I got from Mike and all the CFI’s at Blue Skies Flying Services. Being just north of 65 years old, I am an adult learner, and having experienced some of the ups and downs that go with flight training, I credit my “family” at Blues Skies with providing me the support and encouragement that helped me attain this life-long goal. I would whole-heartedly recommend Blue Skies and any of their CFI’s to anyone who wants to become a member of the aviation community.

Five years ago, I visited Blue Skies Flying Services for an introductory flight. I was fortunate enough to ride along with Jim Fellers, the Chief Flight Instructor and the rest is history. Since that flight I’ve obtained my private, instrument and commercial SEL’s with Jim. He and the entire team have been a pleasure to fly with over the years. So what makes the team at Blue Skies special? They are all passionate about what they do, from the office staff to the aircraft maintenance, to the instructors. They strive to exceed their pilot’s expectations and ensure that your flying experience is safe and enjoyable. Blue Skies has it all. Great instruction, a wide variety of well maintained aircraft and a family atmosphere. I could not be happier with my experience and highly recommend Blue Skies as a destination to pursue your aviation interests.

On June 24, 2014, I passed my Private Pilot check ride, it was one of my most memorable and significant accomplishments and I have the team at Blue Skies Flying Services to thank! At the beginning of my training, I remember trying to decide which Chicago-area school I would train at and worried about "fitting in". I was an older female, but I simply wanted to learn to fly for the fun of it-no aspirations of working for an airline. I stopped into the flight shop and immediately felt welcomed by the team. Throughout my training, it was that supportive and family atmosphere that kept me going, as well as an instructor (Jim Fellers) who was very knowledgeable and customized his approach to my learning style and pace. I still continue to feel that I am a part of their aviation family, enjoy renting and flying a number of various aircrafts in their well-maintained and reliable fleet, have cheered on the successes of many pilot friends who fly for fun as well as professionally, and I have also been able to share my joy of flight with my family and friends. I highly recommend anyone aspiring to fly, whether for fun or career, to come join the Blue Skies family to accomplish their aviation goals.
