by jennyfurst on August 8, 2018

Master Instructors LLC (MI LLC) and its Board of Review take pride in announcing a significant aviation accomplishment on the part of these very special aviation educators.  Recently, they were all accredited through Master Instructors LLC’s https://MICEP.FluidReview.com/ as Masters by Master Instructors LLC, the international Master Instructor accrediting authority for the six (6) Master Instructor designations as well as the home of the industry acclaimed and FAA-approved Master Instructor Continuing Education Program (MICEP)ä.  (US Copyright Office registration number TX0006987479).

To help put these achievements in their proper perspective, there are approximately 101,000 FAA-certificated CFIs in the United States. Fewer than 800 of them have earned Master accreditation thus far.  As a measure of the significance and prestige associated with this title, twenty-three (23) of the last National Flight Instructors of the Year, National FAASTeam Representatives of the Year, or National Aviation Maintenance Techs (AMTs) of the Year were Masters  (see: http://www.GeneralAviationAwards.org/  In addition, the FAA has approved the accreditation as an alternate means for CFIs to renew their flight instructor certificates.

Professional aviation educators who earned or renewed their “Master” title during July 2018 are:

The Master Instructor designation is a national accreditation recognized by the FAA and revered by industry.  It is earned by a candidate through a rigorous process of continuing professional activity and peer review.  Much like a flight instructor’s certificate, it must be renewed biennially.  This process parallels continuing education regimens used by other professionals to enhance their knowledge base while increasing their professionalism. Simply put, the Master Instructor designation is a means by which to identify those outstanding aviation educators, those “Teachers of Flight,” who are demonstrating an ongoing commitment to excellence, professional growth, and service to the aviation community.

Through their dedication to excellence, Masters have earned their “black belts” in aviation education. They truly represent the crème de la crème of the aviation industry!  High and low resolution photos are available upon request.
