Seven Instructors Receive Master Designation In June

National Accreditation Recognized By The FAA

Seven CFIs completed Master Instructors course to receive the prestigious designation in the month of June. The title has been eared 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 June are:

James Lee "Jim" Alsip, Indiantown, FL, a 3-time Master as well as a member of IAC and SAFE, recently renewed his Master CFI-Aerobatic accreditation.  Jim owns Dylan Aviation, an aerobatic flight school at Indiantown Airport (X58) that specializes in basic aerobatic training as well as tailwheel transitions and upset recovery.  He also serves as a FAASTeam representative in the FAA's Orlando FSDO area.
