"I did my Boeing 737 command training with Craig in 2008, needless to say when I found out that I he was my training captain, I new my outcome was almost a given (depending only on myself). 

 

I had flown with Craig in the simulator and online and new the level of expertise and professionalism that he exhibited and hoped it would rub off.

 

What really amazed me was the approach to learning, Craig didn't nit pick and scrutinise every aspect of my operation, instead relied on the BIG lesson principle and allowed me to become comfortable in the new role quickly so that we could focus on what was really important; the things that can really make you come unstuck. This approach not only suited my learning style but also lets the student, with guidance from the instructor, be self critical and cements the lesson learned. 

 

Craig was encouraging when needed and also firm when warranted, friendly but with the correct distance between student and instructor (just what you want, No BS). Craig also gave me critical lessons on the need to be able to change your "posture' or 'bearing' towards others in a command setting when needed, in a deliberate manner. I use this constantly in my role as an airline captain.

 

Craig is one of the most respected training captains at Virgin Blue and anyone whom has the chance to be trained by him should jump at the chance and start listening to what he says, and doing what he does."

"I am currently employed with virginblue airlines as a line captain. my upgrade training from first officer to captain was completed with training captain craig baker. the training I received from craig during this period was of the highest standard and was carried out with the utmost professionalism. From my own experience as a flying instructor in previous years, it was clear to me that not only did craig have a great ability to relate to his student but was also able to create a great learning enviroment, which of course is extremely important. It was a pleasure to be trained by craig during this very busy and important time and certaintly from my experience he comes with the highest of recommendations. "

I took the long road to becoming an airline pilot and even though I knew the pit falls,dealing with the challenges,loosing jobs,various personalitiesetc,I was always wondering weather I was ever going to really make it.

 

After much flying through the regionals and learning how to become a good operator l through the various captains I flew with I soon myself in the position of a training captain with Kendell airlines.This brings you up another level but still not to the level of a captain on a jet aircraft.

 

So after I finally made the position of a first officer in my first jet job I was hoping that I would get the right training Captain who would push me that bit further.

 

I got that and more with  Naomi Radke who I feel was a wonderful training captain with the right personality to fit with the various people she would be training.Very astute, attention to detail,knowing when to push the student that bit further but also knowing when to hold back when the mind was in overload.

 

It’s a tough job trying to get 180 passengers for an hour’s flight to  Sydney  on time in marginal weather with a training F/O who is at best operating at 40% but I never once felt that Naomi did not think I had the situation under control which gave me great confidence in my ability.

 

After my training Naomi has always kept in contact with me and she is a person I can always ring when I need advise on my flying.I can thoroughly recommend her training qualities to anyone.
