Congratulations to Quentin Carter on passing his CFI flight test this week. Quentin has agreed to be CFI until we complete our search for the ideal CFI for the Sunshine Coast Aero Club. We are very fortunate to have both Quentin and Josh to continue with instructing on a daily basis so we have 7 days of the week covered between the two of them.
We shall be placing an ad shortly for the CFI position. If you know or can refer anyone who you think may be suitable we would love to hear from them.
