Six Earn Master Instructor Designation In January

Designation Recognized By The FAA For CFI Renewal

Six flight instructors completed the Master Instructors course to receive the prestigious designation in the month of January. 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.

Those earning the Master designation in January include:

Judy Ann Phelps, Master CFI-Aerobatic, Santa Paula  CA
Judy Phelps, a 4-time Master and a member of IAC as well as SAFE, recently renewed her Master CFI-Aerobatic accreditation.  Judy specializes in aerobatic and emergency maneuver training with CP Aviation at Santa Paula Airport (SZP).  The 2010 National CFI of the Year, she also serves as a FAASTeam representative in the FAA's Van Nuys FSDO area.
