Do you know a teacher who deserves recognition as the best of the best? Nominations for the Flight Instructor Hall of Fame administered by the National Association of Flight Instructors are sought through April 30.
There are a few requirements for induction in this select group of aviation educators that dates to 1997, including a minimum of 20 years of flight instruction experience. Nominees must have held a valid FAA flight instructor certificate, with at least 10 years of active flight instruction, though the criteria do include room for having other roles, including technical support, academics, or writing textbooks.
NAFI will notify the honoree(s) for 2022 by June 1, with an induction ceremony to follow in a “prominent public presentation” typically hosted by NAFI during a major aviation event. NAFI will cover the travel expenses for inductees who attend the ceremony.
