Having owned and piloted various aircraft for most of my life, I’m still somewhat new to Citation ownership and the complexities that come with the management and safe maintenance of a jet. Ortega Aviation Services has helped me dive in to this exciting new world with confidence, and I’ve saved thousands of dollars since signing on with the OAS Guardian program.
Thanks to Teresa’s in-depth knowledge, experience, and persistence, she was able to catch things I would have missed. She knew to look for money savings in places not always obvious to the aircraft owner while keeping safety as the highest priority.
Having someone on my side saved me money, time, and provided me with peace of mind so I can focus on my family and my business.

“I was drawn to aviation from an early age; however, it was my first spin in a Citation Mustang jet, followed by an ICON amphibious sport plane, when I knew that fulfilling my lifelong goal was a must.
Being reared on the rugged and wild Atlantic coast of Ireland, and a weather eye always on the horizon, seems to instill a frontier mentality, and the desire to go find it. But the Covid pandemic, coupled with international travel restrictions between Ireland and the USA, meant that live online Ground School was my only option.
On the recommendation of two high-performance pilots, OAS is the authority, and leads the way in Pilot training. I found that there is an astronomical breath of knowledge at OAS, which gives you the edge, and leaves you well prepared for exams. All the instructors are well seasoned pros!
A first-time aviation student, I was surprised at how well the live EU/USA Transatlantic e-learning worked. Despite the 6-hour time difference between Ireland and Kansas, OAS provides maximum flexibility and I had full class participation and a clear learning road map.
A set of FAA and ASA course materials and instruments, accompany efficient training, in well-structured classes, and there are valuable recorded materials for revision resources.
I learned new skills, and never felt left behind, nor struggled to follow class, because OAS instructors can impart information and the “why” factor with ease. I now understand intrinsic components that will live with me forever.
OAS is so highly experienced, and their teaching is very well explained and well thought out; with a tuition approach that is 100% real world. I ultimately found challenging parts of the course very rewarding, making it easier for me to reach my goal, by exploring the hidden details.
Qualifying as a Pilot is my Olympic gold, it’s my Mount Everest. So, if you have a desire to fulfil a lifelong goal in Aviation, OAS is essential. OAS makes hard work good fun, and my advice to you is – just go for it!”
