From Flight Schools:
A request for another CD - software package for Private Pilot - Aeroplane please!! Before long, all our students will be equipped with Tomvale programs! Obviously we think very highly of your work. A... just took the Class 2 Instructor's written test after studying almost exclusively with your instructor's program -- and he scored high enough to pass the Class 1 as well!! Not too shabby. P.A.
A.B. is the CFI here now and speaks highly of the programme and process. I have seen it and used some of your ideas when working with a student. Congratulations on a great product... We have had great results with the discs that I have asked students to buy on their own from Aviation World etc. but I would like to be able to offer them a deal as a part of our programme. Congrats on a great bunch of material. C.G.
Love your software and continue to recommend it to my students and acquaintances. L.P.
After using your software, I wrote the Ultra-Light Instructor Exam and thought they had only given me part of it. I finished it in ten minutes and got 96%. I am now ordering it for my students. Harold P.
Thank-you for the gift ... I will be ordering many more CDs in the future for my students. Great job! M.R.
From Transport Canada Personnel:
Hi. I just completed the exam for the helicopter instructor exam and I wanted to give you some feedback on your program. In general the program was a very good review for the 6 areas that had questions. It is surprising how much you forget over the years...this program which I found very helpful in providing a complete review both for helicopter and fixed wing. Thanks Very Much. K.W. Transport Canada.
Thank you very much for the new updated disc; very timely because I am off to Calgary for the Helicopter Instructor Refresher Course on November 1 and I like to you demo your package as I think that it is a great training aid for the schools. R.P. Transport Canada
my initial look at the program, I am impressed with the layout and the
ease of loading it on my computer. Thank you for sending me
program so quickly and I will provide feedback to you as I progress
with the program. K.W. Transport Canada Civil Aviation
Just came home from writing the AIRAT exam at TC. I did well - but I found it quite different from the last time I wrote it. I wrote this exam about 3 years ago but I was shy of the grade I needed for a Class One. I found your software very useful in the areas of Aeronautics and Instructor. My score was 82.7%. Thanks again and perhaps I will see you again with one of my students. H.V.
Thanx..Even though I passed my Rec Pilot Airplane exam years ago with 90.2% average, I still like to refer to my Ground School disk. R.C.I purchased your commercial pilot (aeroplane) software and have been verysatisfied. The very few errors have been corrected in the updates... and overall the format is excellent. K.E.
Thank you for your prompt response...I will await to receive this one...will place the other order. Your product was strongly recommended by commercial helicopter pilots here in Penticton. Cheers, O.
I am using your program at my instructor's location, however I would like my own for added convenience. I do believe you have an excellent product that will easily produce a first time pass. Having worked about 3 hrs. on air law I can now achieve an average of over 90%. J.J.
Hi: I received the disk and installed the program on my desktop computer, works fine with Vista, .and I am truly impressed with the remarkable workmanship of your product, .as a matter of fact, I would like to order another copy... for a friend of mine P.T.
Hi! Just wanted to thank you for your amazing support. I phoned from BC not realizing that it was midnight on Sun in Ontario and still got my questions answered. Thanks so much! R.A.
Just a note to say Thank you VERY much for the use of your computer program. It was Great! I spent many nights on my laptop doing test after test and the dictionary is a fantastic tool. It was surprising how many questions were similar to the real exam. S.S.
I would like to add that after reading some of the other comments that I also owe a debt of gratitude to your testing package. The different modes allowed for quick confirmation of knowledge and the resources to look up incorrect answers quickly to maximize learning time. I have recommended your package to a fellow (American) student,...and she was stating that we had nothing like your program...Keep up the excellent work. P.P.
Hi, I purchased "test" Tomvale Exam Software last fall. Found the information and exams to be very helpful. I passed the Transport Canada Private Pilot license written exam easily thanks to your software. B.F.
Thanx C....Even though I passed my Rec Pilot Airplane exam years ago with 90.2% average, I still like to refer to my Ground School disk...
By the way thank you for your software, it is amazing. It helped me get to being an instructor in a year. It helped so much. Thanks again. K.B
Your product was strongly recommended by commercial helicopter pilots here in Penticton YYF. O.C.
My name is...and I bought the software from you when I lived in...Please let me know what I need to do to get it up and running again. I enjoy using it to keep the old brain remembering my aviation knowledge. P.P.About six years ago, I purchased your software to help me obtain my commercial licence. This was the first step to fulfilling my life long dream of becoming an airline pilot...I am just e-mailing to let you know that largely due to Tomvale, I have finally succeeded and am flying right seat on a 737... A big thank you and God Bless. K.L.
Thank you for e-mailing me about the free update for my Private Aeroplane CD...I really do appreciate this service. Again it is so wonderful to see a Canadian presence on the internet concerning aviation. G.M.
...I passed with a 91% overall. The breakdown was: Air Law 100%, Navigation 89%, Meteorology 93%, and Aeronautics / General Knowledge 83%. This was the last step for me to obtain the license since I had passed the flight test last fall, but never seemed to have enough time to prepare for the written. Purchasing your Test software and installing it on my laptop was a major step in overcoming this problem since I was able to study in a convenient manner whenever a few minutes became available, noting areas that required further review of FGU or the AIP for when I got home. The format of Test was also a great help in preparing for the format of the exam -- some of the questions were, in fact, almost identical. The familiarity which your software required me to have with the Toronto VNC was also of great help since the exam navigation problem dealt with a trip from Stanhope to Gananoque to Ottawa, areas well-covered in the Test programme. If I decide to go on and study for the IFR rating or Commercial license, you can be sure that one of my first steps will be to get the relevant programme from you. Thank you both for the software and the service. Both are excellent...Peter B.
I have downloaded your demo version which helped me attain a 98% on my pre-solo PSTAR exam. It is very nice to see a Canadian presence on the Internet concerning flight training in Canada. There seems to be so much out there on the FAA. Thank goodness someone like you is out there for Transport Canada and all of her lovely rules. Thank you very much. Gordon M.
Over the past year, I have been using the PPL software and my 91% pass on the PPAER owes a great deal to this fine package. So thanks for the help! D.N.
I must say that it has been the best tool I have ever used to help me get my license, as I am a bit of a slow learner. Thank you for helping make it possible for me to fulfill my dream of becoming a pilot. W.S.
About Our Product Support:
Hi, I am amazed at your tech support. It doesn't seem to matter what time of day I contact you I receive an immediate response. I am impressed! J.J.
Thanks. Wow it's getting late over there. Go
to bed. Appreciate the prompt response:)
Just a quick note to say a big THANKS for the program, and the personal assistance you gave me in my quest for the Right Stuff! Just so you know, I passed the LAST thing today, which was the Oral Flight Planning portion of the flight test. Your assistance was invaluable in not only completing this, but also in UNDERSTANDING the how and the why. I don't believe that anywhere really walks a student through the process of flight planning. From the selection of the RPM and it's relationship to Pressure altitude, through the TAS/CAS/IAS steps, then to the final compass adjustment based on the compass card. You helped me out a lot, and your offer of continued assistance was, I believe, above and beyond. Again my heartfelt thanks. J.B.
Just a note to thank you for the excellent product support...I know of no other company which would walk me through the software at 11:00 on a Saturday night. Bravo!...T.S.
