NAFI Offers Flight Training Organization (FTO) Membership

NAFI HEADQUARTERS, ALLEGAN, MICH. (September 27, 2011) – The National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) is now offering membership to organizations that provide flight training.

In an effort to allow the organizations that provide the infrastructure and facilities that instructors use to have their staff receive membership benefits, NAFI now offers levels of membership designed for various size flight training organizations (FTOs).

“NAFI knows that FTO’s who have NAFI members on their staff will have a leg up on those that don’t, with instructors who are up-to-date on what is happening in the flight training community through the information the organization provides them.” said NAFI Executive Director Jason Blair.

A FTO, as defined in the membership plan, is any organization that provides training focused on aviation education, for flight, ground based, or simulator based training. Each of these areas affects the overall aviation education and the skill development that pilots use to build their abilities as pilots or educators in the aviation field.  Any such organization is one that NAFI feels can benefit from the information that NAFI and its members share through membership.

As a professional association, NAFI works hard to help make member Flight Training Organizations and member Flight Instructors successful. NAFI provides its members tools to increase their effectiveness. With the pilot population decreasing since the 1970s NAFI and its members must strive to reverse that trend by improving the effectiveness of flight training.
