Four Receive Master Instructor Designation In November

Designation Recognized By The FAA For CFI Renewal

Four flight instructors completed the Master Instructors course to receive the prestigious designation in the month of November. The title has been earned by fewer than 700 of the 91,000 CFIs currently active in the country. The last 17 National Flight Instructors of the Year were Master CFIs. In addition, the FAA has approved the accreditation as an alternate means for CFIs to renew their flight instructor certificates.

The Master Instructor designation is a national accreditation recognized by the FAA and industry that is earned by a candidate through a rigorous process of continuing professional activity and peer review. Much like a flight instructor's certificate, it must be renewed biennially. This process parallels continuing education regimens used by other professionals to enhance their knowledge base while increasing their professionalism

Aviation educators who earned the "Master" title during November are:

Shane Larrel Vande Voort, Pella, IA. Master CFI
