Master Instructors LLC Now Officially Admins Of Master Instructor Program

Master Instructors LLC has confirmed to ANN that its internationally acclaimed and FAA approved Master Instructor Continuing Education Program, (the preeminent aviation educator credentialing program in the United States), has been updated, restructured, and is once again available to all qualified applicants. Adhering to a rigorous continuing education and peer-review process, the program promotes professionalism among aviation educators and provides well-deserved recognition for their contributions to aviation education, training, and safety.

The Master Instructor program was conceived and developed by MCFIs Sandy and JoAnn Hill, longtime CFIs and nationally known aviation educators. It has periodically been revised and expanded by them over the years. The Hills have been serving Master Instructors and other aviation educators since 1995, and have been responsible for reviewing more than 1,300 Master Instructor applications.

Once affiliated with the National Association of Flight Instructors, Sandy Hill explained, "We wanted to expand access to the Master Instructor program while also assuring its autonomy, credibility, integrity, and high standards. As the international Master Instructor accrediting body, providing an additional layer of independence from other organizations became increasingly important to us. Consequently, we felt it was time to bring all aspects of our program in-house under Master Instructors LLC."

The new company has a nine-member Board of Review who collectively has held Master accreditation for more than 85 years.

Master Instructors LLC recently received a two-year letter of authorization from the FAA qualifying the program for flight instructor certificate renewal while the program is also FAA WINGS-approved. Master Instructors LLC currently has a letter of understanding with SAFE, the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (www.SafePilots.org). The company is a sponsor and supporter of Advocates for Aviation Safety Foundation (www.AFASF.org), and is pursuing FAASTeam industry membership (www.FAASTeam.gov). Master Instructors LLC is also pursuing accrediting agreements with the Bonanza Pilot Proficiency Program and the Mooney Aircraft Pilots Association Safety Foundation, among others, and will soon begin a dialogue with the Civil Air Patrol.
