For me AAA was not my first choice for a flight school in the United States. I was a student at a different flight school located in Redlands California that closed its doors. This was the beginning of how I found AAA in San Diego/El Cajon California. The school is located at Gillespie Field Airport. Along with my friend Clay I started the registration process with this school to continue my PPL course all the way to Commercial Multi-Engine rating. The training environment here is great. I love the San Diego weather, which is sunny almost every day.


I also like the way they teach. My instructor Larry Taylor guided me from the beginning. After the first flight he trusted, and released me for the first solo cross country right away to get me back on track, which had been delayed for several months because of the situation from my previous flight school.


After I finished from AAA and returned back to Indonesia it took me no time to get a job. I passed on my first try for First officer selection with Indonesia Air Asia, flying their top of the line Airbus A320 family to most destinations around South East Asia and Australia.


My attendance at AAA was one of the best times of my life.
