"We had a unique situation that called for classes to be taught late night after long 12 hour work days during the BP oil spill. Despite our class of 15 individuals from MS, LA & TX, and their wearyness, Captain Greg was able to keep each of us involved and attentive to the coursework. He made a concerted effort to spend as much one-on-one time with each student as was neccessary for them to succeed. His knowledge was extensive and he was able to convey that to us very easily. We had a 100% graduating class. Thanks Captain Greg, we will always remember you with tremendous admiration and gratitude."
Michael B. Knepp, United States Environmental Services
"As the former Deputy Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration I was personally and intimately involved in the training and testing of pilots and air traffic controllers. I know first hand how complicated and important the process can be to assure the thorough training and qualifications of applicants who may in the future be making life and death decisions on behalf of other people.
When Captain Metcalf contacted me told me his intentions, and asked if I would consider serving as an instructor, I not only agreed but also insisted on writing a letter to the Maritime Training Center of the Coast Guard with my highest recommendation for Atlantic Captain's Academy.
As one of his former students, his knowledge of the subject matter was immediately evident to me, but more impressive is his ability to transmit information in a variety of ways to accommodate a group of students that are highly diverse in their own nautical backgrounds and still maintain a high level of motivation and interest by the class as a whole."
Harris, Former Deputy Director of the FAA
"Captain Greg Metcalf is an excellent instructor and brings enthusiasm to the subject matter and to his classroom. He teaches to the test, keeps classes focused and on track and genuinely cares about his students' success. I felt more than adequately prepared when taking each of the tests, including the endorsements. I greatly enjoyed my interaction with Greg and my class and would highly recommend Atlantic Captain's Academy to anyone interested in obtaining any level of a captain's license."

"Thanks for Captain Greg I am now making a great living as water taxi captain in St Thomas. He is an excellent teacher who bent over backwards by giving me the extra help and encouragement I needed to complete the course. I really learned a valuable life lesson about what I can accomplish from Captain Greg and feel great about getting my license."
