The National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) and Avemco Insurance Co. kicked off the New Year by launching a new non-owned insurance program for flight instructors. The new NAFI CFI Insurance Program features expanded professional liability coverage and liability limit options for type-specific aircraft, including traditional single and multiengine aircraft, along with offerings for seaplane, experimental and light sport airplanes. Automatically included is non-owned coverage for personal flying.
The Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) recently began providing new and renewing members complimentary copies of the 37-minute CD “Flying Tips.” Produced and donated to SAFE by GoldSealFlight.com, the CD features 16 audio tips recorded by SAFE member and Master Instructor Rich Stowell on subjects ranging from human factors, to the fundamentals of aircraft control, to flying in the traffic pattern, and more.
Seven aviation educators received accreditation as Masters by Master Instructors LLC in December.
Many years ago, when I was working as a television news reporter, I spent a day in a wheelchair so that I could get an idea of what it was like to be disabled for a story on the American With Disabilities Act. I remember how challenging it was to use a water fountain, get in and out of a car or an elevator, even maneuver in an office. These were all things I did everyday without thinking. I wondered if I would have a similar experience if I flew the Sky Arrow 600 with hand controls.
