I did my Specific Pilot Testing yesterday and passed!! The lady wouldn't tell me what band I achieved, but said that I did really well in the maths and dials component of testing.
It was all about speed and accuracy like you had taught. All of your techniques and tips paid off and I would like to thank you once again.'
The mathematics and physics courses gave me the platform to further my career and studies. Steve's presentation of the topics are insightful, comprehensive and deliver a "real world" component that give the content meaning and clarity. As an aviation buff myself, I enjoyed Steve's enthusiasm toward aviation related topics and examples.— , Aerospace Engineering, Queensland University of Technology (July, 2008)

When I commenced these courses I was working for QANTAS in the Heavy Maintenance division conducting structural repairs and modifications to Boeing 747 and 767 aircraft with minor forays into the Airbus A330. Having already a Commercial Pilot's Licence, I was looking at plugging the education gaps I had to move into airline flying. While…

I hope the new year found you well. I did complete my aircrew testing two weeks ago. I was very successful with testing as i ticked the ACO, ATC and of course Pilot boxes. When compared with others that i tested with i was miles ahead. I really do believe your course was a massive help. So again thank you very…

When I commenced the Aeronautical Mathematics course I had not attempted any significant Mathematics since Year 11, which was well over 7 years ago. I had always had a touch of fear and trepidation for the subject but from the very outset of Steve's classes, his enthusiasm and professionalism provided a welcome relief and…
I thank you once again for your help with the stage one assessment.
I am happy to report that I was actually successful in getting through to the second stage.
The preparation and work that I did with you for the numerical reasoning section obviously paid off.
As I discussed with you I had…

Thanks for that Steve. I actually sat that testing myself last week and managed to pass; will have my Assessment Day in a week two hopefully. I have to say, your maths tests were brilliant preparation for the Pilot Testing. The quick mental maths test was quite achievable after having practised all your tests until I felt comfortable with them…
Hi Steve, I got through stage 1. They called me the next day and told me I have stage 2 at the beginning of June! Thanks for your help; I don't think that I would have got through without doing the course. I found it quite easy with the preparation you gave me. I think the course was spot on. It seems preparation is everything. The advice you…— , Pilot with Qantas (May, 2004)
Just emailing to let you know I completed flight screening a few weeks ago and have been recommended for pilot. I have also been offered air traffic control with Airservices, so have to decide which one to take. Difficult choice, but not a bad position to be in though! Zac and Logan were also on flight screening a week…

I attended Steve's Aeronautical Mathematics course to assist in my application to the Australian Defence Force. I had been told previously that my school results for mathematics would prevent my application from being taken seriously. Since completing Steve's course I have been selected for Flight Screening in Tamworth, and I know that I owe a…
