The National Association of Flight Instructors has extended the deadline for nominations until the end of January for the 2016 selection to the National Flight Instructor Hall of Fame.
NAFI sponsors the National Flight Instructor Hall of Fame (HOF) to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to aviation education and flight instruction while reflecting credit upon themselves and their profession.
This year’s inductees will be honored at the NAFI Member Barbeque Dinner at SUN ‘n FUN in Lakeland, Florida, on April 6, 2016.
