I definitely made the right choice when I decided to enroll for my SUA training with FlyRyte. The instructors at FlyRyte are incredibly knowledgeable in all things aviation, true professionals and great presenters who impart their extensive knowledge in a way that is clear and understandable. The course content is on point, developed by a team who live and breathe aviation and who obviously love what they do. The Team at FlyRyte are supportive and encouraging and quite clearly excellent ambassadors for the SUA community in Ireland. My flight test Examiner Eugene was awesome, encouraging and supportive, he put me at ease during the flight test and I really enjoyed spending time with him. I am looking forward to a long and lasting relationship with FlyRyte Team I know if I ever have any need of support they are only a phone call away.

The training and advice that I received from the instructors at FlyRyte was excellent and very informative. The trainers are extremely knowledgable, professional and they have a wealth of knowledge in aviation. Since completing my training I've had to call on the trainers for advice, they have been exceptionally quick to respond to any questions I've asked and they were more than happy to help in whatever way they could. I would highly recommend FlyRyte and I would have no hesitation recommending them

These lads are quite simply the best in the business. I just completed my test with Eugene in Wicklow today and even in that process I learned so much from him, it was a priceless insight into how real pilots think. FlyRyte are the leaders in this area. I know now that these guys will have my back going forward which is what you need in the fast-changing industry. 5 Stars from me.
