Bob Meder, NAFI chair and Rick Todd, NAFI president, will discuss how the NAFI Professional Development Program (PDP) will offer advanced development for CFIs to improve aviation safety, proficiency and pilot completions.
Highlights of the broadcast include:
- An overview of the current state of the flight instruction industry
- Outlining the definition and advantage of participation
- Discuss the future of the PDP
“We are very excited to launch the NAFI PDP because it’s a great opportunity for members to get involved and have a means to share valuable information and experience with the flight instruction community,” Todd said. Members will have the opportunity to offer content and present their material during the various PDP events.
“This new program is the culmination of years of effort to give our members a way to share instructional knowledge within the CFI community,” Meder added.
The presentation qualifies for FAASTeam WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program credit and will be archived on faasafety.gov for future viewing. Go to www.faasteamtv.com/NAFI-PDP-Course-1 and add this event to your calendar.
The NAFI PDP supports a 50-year mission in furthering the professional standing of flight instructors through real time training and education specific to the needs of aviation educators. The program demonstrates NAFI’s commitment to members and the aviation industry to help flight instructors raise the bar in education, risk management, professionalism and customer service.
At EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017, NAFI will introduce other PDP initiatives in the NAFI Professional Development Center (PDC). The Center will feature a 50 seat theater for presentations by members for CFIs, a simulator classroom with four Precision Flight Controls AATDs for real-life scenario-based sim training for CFIs, and a Mentorship Cafe for networking with fellow members, NAFI staff and board members.
