10 CFIs were recently accredited as Master Instructors by Master Instructors LLC, the international Master Instructor accrediting authority.
The Master Instructor designation is a national accreditation recognized by the FAA and industry that 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.
Aviation educators who earned the “Master” title during April are: Gordon Ewald, Master CFI, Hardy, Va.; Mike Garrison, Master CFI, Leawood, Kan.; Paul Gretschel, Master CFI, Coram, N.Y.; Tom Karcz, Master CFI, Salina, Kan.; Tyler Khan, CFI-Aerobatic, Tallmadge, Ohio; Quay Snyder, Master CFI, Monument, Colo.; Greg Soter, Master CFI, Orem Utah; Cathy Steele, Master CFI, Severna Park, Md.; Hobie Tomlinson, Master CFI, Huntington, Vt.; and Matt Wise, Master CFI, Tulsa, Okla.
