I live in Budapest. Thought I‘ll have to go to Vilnius for several weeks during ground training in AFA. But what a good surprise – AFA instructors with all the equipment needed arrived in Budapest. I had a very professional and convenient ground training with AFA at my home city, because of it I‘ve saved big travel & accommodation expenses.
