Aero-News Quote of the Day
"I've spent a great deal of time over the last week
reading letters, talking with NAFI members, and Board members and
can assure you that the credibility of the ENTIRE NAFI Board is in
question. Whether it's reality or perception, the fact is that a
strong negative feeling exists, and the Board must address it with
actions that will serve NAFI, both short and long term. Action must
turn a negative into a positive."
Source: EAA President Tom Poberezny, weighing
in on the apparent crisis inside the National Association of Flight
Instructors in a memo to NAFI board members. The trouble began two
weeks ago when NAFI members learned two of the "most productive,
well-liked, pro-instructor, and long-standing members of the Board"

positions, and would be relieved of their day-to-day administration
of the NAFI Master Instructor Program. A vote on that plan was
deferred at last Friday's meeting.
