“I have to admit to not looking forward to this class as I have been through BRM and BRM-P before. I was pleasantly surprised as it became obvious that this class was going to be relevant and educational to what I actually do and deal with as a pilot. The two pilot simulations and discussion gave me an opportunity to find better use of that resource. With the addition of the other subject matters it was a very good class.”
