Recent Consulting Client Testimonial
I’ve had the great fortune to work with Kirby Ortega for almost 10 years. His knowledge, expertise on both my prior airplane, a Citation Mustang and now my Citation M2 is unbelievable. As a FAA Designated Examiner, Kirby is able to provide me with both training and my annual 61.58. There is no question that he is truly the best. As a testament, Kirby was inducted into the Instructor’s Hall of Fame (where they only choose 1 instructor annually for the entire country). I think that says it all. And, because of his credentials, most insurance companies accept his training for their annual training requirements which makes it much more enjoyable than any simulator training I’ve attended. I go out of my way to recommend Kirby and feel good that I am helping out a fellow pilot. It’s almost like sharing a close-held secret.
I also utilize Teresa with Ortega Aviation Services for ProAdvantage Program and maintenance review; as well as performed the pre-buy inspection for my new Citation M2. Teresa’s decades of experience working with Textron brings a depth of knowledge that few possess. Teresa keeps an eye on my programs & maintenance and, without question, continuously reduces my costs. She knows the “ins and outs” and what to look for. I also had her inspect my new Citation M2 prior to taking delivery which saved me days of personal down-time by having the pre-delivery squawks corrected prior to my arrival. Not only did she save me time, Teresa found things I would have never known to inspect. As a Citation owner, I can’t express my appreciation enough to both Kirby and Teresa for what they do. You won’t find a better team!
