      Good school, helpful office staff and friendly instructors. I would recommend the school to anyone with a teenager learning to drive.

      Airway is a very professional organization. The building is old but that keeps your cost down. The review by my son is an embarrassment to him. My son so far refuses to finish the final 2 hours of classroom. All he has to do is get on a computer and take some tests. He has difficulty being respectful towards anyone unless they treat him as if he were some prince. Sorry about that. I highly recommend this place. Hundreds of people go here and have a great experience every year. I highly recommend it.

      My two girls have gone through Airway. My second just passes her test. More important they taught her how to be a defensive driver. She was taught emergency procedures in car. A great job done! It is hard to let your child drive but I know she has had proper training. Thank You everyone at Airway.

      What a helpful place! I've had three children go through this school and I have never had a problem. The staff is helpful, the price is great, and my children learned a lot. Walt and Kathy run excellent classes. After parent class, I even feel like I learned! As long as your children pay attention while both driving and in class, they are good to go! Thank you Airway!!

      I was shocked, to say the least, while reading these comments! My second son is going to Airway at this present time, and I have never had a problem with the driver's, or anyone else. In fact the woman I dealt with today, was insightful, explained, and answered my questions, and helpful. I feel my second son will have the same informative experience, which is a positive for life skills, and lessons. Learning to drive is both exciting, and a privilege. I am more than sure, that my second son will do just fine here, just as my oldest had.

      My first daughter had success at Airway, and told my second daughter to ask for road instructor Ron when she went there. Both kids thought he was very patient and helpful, and the second daughter just passed the DMV test on the first try!

      This is the second child I have sent to Airway. My experience, and more importantly theirs, was wonderful until last week on my son's second to last driving hour. Ron was rude and down right obnoxious to both my son and myself. I was so disappointed after such and incredible experience with this class act.If I had a third child, I would definately send them to Airway, I would just make sure that Ron was not their road instructor!

      Aside from being quite overpriced, the only employee who isn't rude is Walt. Everyone else, especially Cathy is horribly rude not only in person, but on the phone as well. It seemed like a "bother" to them to teach me techniques on the road such as parallel parking, despite the fact that it's their job. I actually left Airways and went to another driving school to get my license.

He rather brush it off. As long as he has his money, he frankly doesn't give a ----!! I wouldn't sink my money into his business. The instructors are good but beware when taking your driving test. There is one who is rude and obnoxious and very unfair. He passes some who have made several mistakes and there are others who he irritates and tries to belittle.

      I have had 2 sons go to Airway. I cannot say enough good things about this driving school. As a parent, you want your kid to learn while in a class. Both my sons came home after classes telling my husband and I all that they learned while at driving school. Each of my kids were in a regular "classroom" setting, with a actual teacher. I have one son who was very nervous to drive. This school was so patient and caring, and even took extra time with my son on several occasions. My kids learned everything they needed to know to drive safe. I was concerned about the highway, but they did a fantastic job teaching that too. The staff is polite, and the school itself is a real classroom, in a clean professional setting. The school is also in a good area of town. The cars were very nice too. I would recomend this driving school to anyone who has kids. A + school~!!

The teachers tried to help you understand how to prepare for the driving test and written test. I have no complaints at all.

      I am not sure how people could write such negative feedback on such a good school.I hav ebever had nay problems with the driving school. The secretaries are all nice. They are always looking out for you remindign you if you still need to bring in paperwork for your driving test, and they call to remind you when you have a driving! They don't have to do that stuff but they still do anyway, and that puts them above the rest. The curriculum of the course is good, and the teachers that teach it make it fun and easy to remember.And they don't jsut show videos like at some other drivings, they teacher actually teaches. And for the people who think it is overpriced, you are seriously wrong. They are probably one of the cheapest schools around, and you get much more than what you pay for. I had a friend who spent close to a 1,000 dollars for driving school down in fairfield. and you all think the $490 is expensive. I would definetly recommend Airway Drivign School to all of my friends. They have great service and staff, and they really do prepare you for what to expect when you are driving. Keep up the good work!!

      a student

      I finished Airway Driving School a couple years ago and I would like to respond to the student's mother comment. Ms. Kasper is an excellent secretary who has always helped me with my questions with the school as well as preparing me for my own driving test. She always gives out her opinions about how you can never take too many practice tests in preparing for your driving exam and because of her I passed with flying colors. I also had a couple problems with some of the drivers that I went out for lessons and Ms. Kasper made sure I was not put with two instructors that Airway has had problems with. Just like any secretary at any place, everyone has had their ups and downs and I am sure no one is perfect. However, no one should make a comment about a certain secretary working there, especially because secretaries do not make the driving school: instead, the instructors, the learning material, and how many students pass from their school is what should be looked upon.

      A student's mother

      I gave a poor review based on only the woman, Ms. Kasper, who works at the desk and that I have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with. I had 2 kids enrolled at Airway & Ms. Kasper is extremely rude. She is ALWAYS frustrated, edgy, and irritated. She has no patience for the job she is in. I cannot for the life of me, imagine why the owners of Airway continue to employ her. If anyone asked me if their child should attend this school, I would say I liked the school with the big exception of having to deal with someone like Ms. Kasper. We, the parents, pay a very high price for our child to attend this driving school, although there are others to choose from, and Ms. Kasper should treat us with respect, as I have always treated her when I have had to deal with her. She complains everytime you walk in how busy she is & she cannot help you right now & you'll have to wait. And then when she DOES help you, she makes it very clear you have "bothered" her immensely...when in fact, it is her job to help you & she should seriously consider working someplace where she does not have to work with the public. Hope the owners realize she is NOT an asset to their business...actually, quite the opposite, I am sorry to say.

      I'm still in the process of getting my license here. It's a bit expensive - I'm sure the rate just keeps going up and up. This place isn't "excellent" nor "poor" and I have no clue what "average" driving school implies. Kathy is a fine teacher. The staff are pretty helpful. You need 11 different lessons which are held 6-8 mon-thurs and 9-11 on saturdays. Then you have to take two days of written testing. Once you sign up for a lisence date, you can start doing the mandatory 2 computer lessons. You have to sign up for these in advance. You need classes 1 through 5 to schedule the 8 driving hours with an instructor. Hope this helped!! Call their number for any questions.

      I too have had problems with getting my son driving hours. We were told that he cannot schedule hours until some time in Septemnber. Of course, by that time, the learner's permit expires. Then what?? I found this to be very expensive and he receives no guidance. He has had one hour of driving and needs to have more. They were late two hours picking him up for his lesson when he did have it scheduled. I am so disappointed.

      This has been a total waste of money. My son finished his classes a month ago, and I have not been able to schedule any of the driving hours. I've left numerous calls for the mysterious "owner" to call me back but she has not. It has been the worst customer experience I have ever had. They wanted all the money up front. I guess they are smart, because I would have gone somewhere else pretty quick. My daughter went to Jerrys in Ansonia, and I would suggest that anyone thinking about Airway, should think again. My next step will be small claims court, Better Business Bureau, and maybe Mr. Blumenthal. I have been trying to schedule the 8 hours of driving for 4 weeks and I don't even get the courtesy of a return call. Think twice before considering this driving school.
