From the Desk of NAFI Chairman Robert Meder:

Everyone here at NAFI cares deeply about the health and safety of our members, fellow pilots, and CFIs. All the NAFI staff and board work remotely except for our administrative coordinator who is now working remotely too. We encourage one another daily to stay safe and well by observing social distancing and keeping tabs on news updates from medical authorities. We encourage you to do the same to stay safe and well.

Please spend a few minutes viewing this video provided by NAFI’s Director of Program Development, John Niehaus, with updates about NAFI and our programs. He covers the current situation for the association and a few issues we currently face.
