Century has had two gear up landings in
the past two months. Would you trust your life to this company.
Richie Greene cares more about how much money he can charge you vs teaching you to fly. My primary instructor did not like working for him and recommended me to his friend who worked with me to get a Private, Commercial, and Instrument ratings. There are 3 other flight schools at Caldwell (KCDW) that are far better. I recommend Fischer Aviation..
Richie Green refers to all other flight schools on the airport as "pizzas" (not exactly sure what that means). This type of behavior is normal for Mr. Greene, and is what got him thrown out of Morristown airport.
After Century saw this review they had a shill write a positive review. I stand by my words and signed my real name to this review.
I've trained at a number of flight
schools throughout my aviation career. Century Air is by far and large the best I have ever seen. From their amazing and technologically advanced facilities, equipment, and high-end flight simulators, to their competent and friendly staff of instructors, schedulers, and maintenance crew, the experience one will have upon walking through the doors is sure to impress.
Century Air provided me with comprehensive syllabuses that outlined, in excruciating detail, the course of study for each rating and certificate. The courses were broken down by the hour and at every point throughout my studies I knew what content to focus on, what was expected of me, and how to accomplish the goal or task at hand. For me, being one who benefits from structure and regiment, this was invaluable.
Prior to training at Century Air, I've heard from the instructor, "We'll figure out what to do once we're in the air.", "Let me ask my buddy what he's doing with his student today.", and, if you can believe it, even, "Well, what do you feel like doing today?" Really? Not at Century Air. Before every lesson the student is briefed on what will take place and any questions or ambiguities about procedures or maneuvers are clarified before stepping foot on the tarmac. After the flight the student is debriefed. Again, questions are answered, comments and performance analysis are provided, and progress is charted. It is an absolutely infallible system.
The level of professionalism, guidance, and knowledge here, in my opinion, is unparalleled in today's industry. Now this is Not to say that they will babysit you or lead you by the hand down the path to success. That is not what they are about. They expect you to succeed through hard work and dedication. Let's be real, that's what it takes to succeed in the real world anyway; in Any industry. But they do an unequivocal job of providing you with the tools and the knowledge do so.
In closing, Century Air undoubtedly provided me with the necessary experience and an incredible skill set to succeed in today's aviation market. It goes without saying that the only thing superseding the already abounding professionalism and knowledge demonstrated by the entire staff at Century Air is their dedication to one's success. From the cleanliness of the flight school and simulator center, to the jovial and welcoming atmosphere, to the delicious coffee served in-house, it is immediately apparent that their aim to please goes well beyond the front desk. Do I recommend Century Air flight school to any aspiring pilot? ... no, rather I IMPLORE you to make Century Air flight school your Only choice when learning to fly. For me, there simply is No Other Option.
CL-65 Pilot and Proud Graduate of Century Air
My experience at Century Air has been excellent. I have been flying at Century Air for about 12 years now. I had learned to fly in the 70's but had been away from flying for over 20 years. I had trepidations about getting back to flying again after so long. I went to Century in 2000 and had a consultation with the owner, Richard Greene. The consultation was an excellent opportunity for me to find out what I would be getting into if I decided to get back into flying. Ultimately, the consultation became a significant factor in my decision to go back to flying and to do it at Century, as he made clear what would be involved, what would be expected of me, and what I should expect from Century. After I decided to proceed with training, I found myself in a well structured program that was tailored to my needs and which enabled me to, once again, regain my confidence as a pilot. Century delivered fully on what was promised. I have found that the programs available at Century are comprehensive and suited to all levels of training. The owners and staff at Century are both knowledgeable and professional as well as thorough I highly recommend Century as a superb training facility
