NAFI Introduces Flight Training Organization Membership

KALAMAZOO, MI.  (April 10, 2013) The National Association of Flight Instructors introduced the NAFI FTO Membership, a new membership for Flight Training Organizations, at its annual Sun 'n Fun Members’ Barbecue. This new membership helps NAFI broaden its efforts to help its members on the business of flight instruction, in addition to its long-time focus on raising the level of professionalism of flight instructors.

NAFI will work with NAFI FTO members to develop programs that will benefit them, the CFIs who work with them, as well as their students. An important early initiative will be a focus on private and sport pilot certificate completions. New student starts and pilot retention will be high priorities.

Operating an FTO to share the dream of flight is a rewarding yet challenging undertaking. FTOs are well positioned to help grow aviation. By banding together NAFI believes that member FTOs can find solutions to overcome the most daunting challenges.
