To anyone who’s reading these testimonials: Go for it with Tom! I’ve been into aviation for almost 20 years now and flying floatplanes has been on my big list of “things to do before you die”! I finally got the opportunity to visit BC and decided to go for my sea plane rating there. I chose Island Coastal Aviation, since they already had experience with foreign pilots and they didn’t dissapoint me!

Tom works in a very professional and calm manner as well as on a high standard. It was a lot of fun flying with him and I felt very comfortable all the time. I can highly recommend him as an instructor to anyone!

What I love about flying floatplanes: the challenge, the freedom, the nature, being independant… and the possibility to combine my love for water & air as well as low level flying 😉 ! Thanks soooo much for these great & unforgettable flights! … can’t wait to be back!
