The board of directors of the IMC Club International, Inc. recently adopted a resolution to embrace and promote the Model Code of Conduct for flight instructors.
“We believe it is a framework from which good aeronautical decision making can evolve over the life of an instructor’s career,” said board members in their resolution.
The Aviators Model Code of Conduct, including the new Code for Flight Instructors published this spring, bills itself as‘a vision of excellence for aviators. The code has seven sections, each containing principles and sample recommended practices. The principles under general responsibility of instructors, for example, include: make safety the number one priority, demonstrate excellent in airmanship, and aspire to professionalism.
“Pilot’s and their passengers’ safety comes as a direct result of their conduct. Their conduct is usually learned and assimilated from their flight instructors. It is our responsibility as instructors to accept nothing less than conduct of good judgment and excellence. As a safety organization this is exactly our objective,” said Radek Wyrzykowski, president of IMC Club.
