The National Association of Flight Instructors Code of Ethics



We, the members of the National Association of Flight Instructors, accept the responsibility to practice our profession according to the highest ethical standards.


Therefore we pledge always to:

  • PROVIDE a safe and effective learning situation for our students;
  • Continually IMPROVE our own teaching and flying skills through education and operational experiences;
  • ADHERE to safe practice and to applicable Federal and State Aviation Regulations;
  • TREAT all fellow flight instructors with respect;
  • CONDUCT both our professional and personal lives in a manner to reflect credit on the profession and to set an example of self-discipline for all pilots;
  • ENCOURAGE our fellow flight instructors and the organizations in which they teach to uphold and support these principles, and to question and resist those practices which may undermine or defeat them.

Each member of the National Association of Flight Instructors agrees to abide by this Code of Ethics to further the objectives declared in the NAFI Constitution (Preamble and Section B) and the Bylaws (Article 2) of the Association.
