About the Author


A native of Toronto, Canada, Andrew Fasan has been a Flight Instructor since 1994. Having harboured an ambition to fly from an early age, his introduction to flying came with a spell as a student at Toronto Airways in Markham, Ontario. Convinced from these initial flying lessons that an aviation career beckoned, his keen appetite for flying soon led him to the prestigious Flight Safety International training facility in Vero Beach, Florida where he earned his private, commercial, multi-engine and IFR ratings. 


After obtaining an instructor rating, he taught on a full-time basis at Toronto’s City Centre Airport (now Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport) during which time he developed the material for Flight Test Notes. Seeing a strong need to assist students to a greater degree with their flight test preparations, Andrew developed Flight Test Notes to help his students gain greater understanding and confidence in the application of the air exercises required of them to obtain their licences. 


Now flying as a full-time captain, (and with over 10,000 hours of flight time accumulated), Andrew maintains his instructor rating and continues to take a keen interest in bettering flight instructional methods, and in furthering the education of students.
