VANESSA KUAGBENU - (GHANA)

I thought I knew my onions until Captain Zino brought the twists and I realised the information I had prior to this program was only a fraction of what should be known. The program was robust. You can tell Captain Zino possesses a coruscatingly adept knowledge of flight training and aviation in general — he is truly a virtuoso of aviation. His passion to impart those coming behind is palpably contagious. No doubt he is the mentor to have. I would definitely recommend anyone looking to set out for a career in aviation, especially flight training, to reach out to Zino Aviation and sign up for mentorship, as I have NO doubt whatsoever that such a person would be making an auspicious decision that will yield results in the long run.

I personally found Captain Zino's Masterclass programme very eye-opening.

He was very dedicated to teaching us a lot of things most people don't know about the aviation industry. Our sessions were very interactive. He took his time to answer everyone's question(s) without making us feel stupid. He cleared a lot of doubts and misconceptions. He is a great mentor!

What an eye-opening session I received from Captain Zino not to mention his straight-up honesty and desire to help me more especially as we were having a first-time conversation. If I was at zero before I met him, I'm definitely at 100 now. It's worth every minute. Thanks Captain!

The high point for me was learning from Captain Zino that it is possible to go from ab-initio to CPL-ME-IR in 6 months at half the price most students would usually do it for. A lot of questions bugging my mind going into the program were answered and clarified during the Q&A sessions. I would definitely recommend anyone looking to set out for a career in aviation, to reach out to Zino Aviation and sign up for mentorship, as I have NO doubt whatsoever that such a person would be making an auspicious decision that will yield results in the long run.

Zino Aviation Masterclass Program was one of the most educational and aviation misconception destroying experiences I’ve ever had the pleasure of participating in.

He was detailed in explaining the struggles and expectations of starting a pilot career from flight training all the way down to the housing, transportation, and ground school. He covered tips on how to find a job after training and mistakes to avoid while training. I’m in a better position to continue my training all thanks to this program

Like they say, Knowledge is Power. I feel empowered through this course and I must say that I was blown away by its content. I thought I learnt the ropes and the know-how on starting my Piloting journey but little did I know that I was in for a ride - what an eye-opener! Zino is a NATURAL and his passion is contagious! He communicates effectively and makes sure that he leaves you with an apt comprehension of his teachings.

I am glad that I clicked on that link and enrolled for the course.

I would recommend Zino Aviation without an iota of doubt! Thanks to the Zino team and I look forward to the Mentorship programme!
