Steve and Kathy,
Your Unusual Attitude and Spin Recovery Course saved my life yesterday, even though I took your course 2 years ago.
I am a low hour private pilot, not instrument rated. Late last night I was flying a Cessna 172 and inadvertently flew into some low clouds while climbing. Full IMC. I could not see anything outside. I did call ATC for help and was given vectors to a nearby well-lit Class D field, but I was trapped in the clouds for some time while attempting to follow these vectors. As I noticed the instruments starting to dance around I realized I lacked the ability (muscle memory? trained reflexes?) to quickly interpret them and take action. Then I knew I was in trouble. I found myself "chasing" the instruments, and everything started to happen faster and faster and faster; I was WAY behind the airplane.

Well, I did break out (or fall out?) of the clouds - and found myself at 400 feet AGL and noticed that the horizon was up high in the windscreen (nose dive?); I had to lift my head slightly to see it. I was in a steep bank and it was slowly getting steeper!(Spiral dive?) I think the plane was starting to roll and I was also obviously in a nose low attitude. Here is where your training came in. I was able to immediately recover from that unusual attitude at such a dangerously low altitude - at night. After that I was able to see the Class D field's lights, fly toward the field, and land safely.
When I dropped out those clouds I had a just few seconds to react and recover the plane. There was no time for guesswork. I had one shot at it. Your course saved my life.
Thank you.

I want to thank you for the wonderful time I spent with you at Wing Over Aerobatics.  I felt very welcome. Your flight school is professional and personable, The tailoring of your instruction to my flying skills and needs showed your dedication of teaching flying to others. Flying with you and Steve was a joy. Your love of flying and teaching shows and is infectious for the student. I want to come back again and fly with you both. 
Flying the Zlin was a joy and a very good airplane to teach fundamentals of aerobatics. Honest airplane, does what you ask and fun to fly. The fact that it is similar to the general aviation fleet makes it wonderful for the average pilot to learn skills they might need and have fun in the process.
The Pitts S2B. Everything about flying left me with a grin on my face. An aircraft designed for fun. Loops, Rolls, Hammerheads, etc. I felt the airplane was going "Weeeee" right along with me.
My  flying skills have been improved and I will use them while flying sailplanes or power.

Thank you for the excellent training. I had fun and the most important, I learned a lot.
