We believe there is no substitute for actual. The antiquated technology of portable simulators used by some training organizations, reinforces our core belief that actual flying conditions cannot be replicated
Newport Beach, Calif. (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
AFIT known and referred to as "The Most Respected Name in Aviation" and the nations largest and most effective Accelerated Flight Training Organizations in the US, today announced the hiring of Mr. Michael Roberts of Ukiah, California. The company also announced plans to hire 2 additional Senior Flight Instructors in 2013 and is focusing its recruitment efforts on identifying Senior Flight Instructor Candidates for High Performance and Cabin Class aircraft (especially the Cirrus SR-22 with Perspective Panel) and who possess certain critical classroom training skills which are deemed essential to address our increasingly complex aircraft and training responsibilities across the country.
"We are delighted to have Mr. Roberts join our organization," said Tony P. Montalte, President & General Manager. Mr. Roberts comes to us with over 36 years experience as a Certified Flight Instructor (CFII, ATP, MEL, Commercial SEL and MEL) under his belt with thousands of hours of logged flight time and highly regarded as an innovator and industry leader. His skills, expertise and leadership will benefit us greatly and will enhance our growing market share and presence in Northern California and surrounding states.
Montalte states the decision to add an additional Instructor was reached in view of the fact that the Company continues to exceed its corporate and financial goals. The introduction to Guarantee AFIT's IFR Training program came years ago when the company realized huge potential for gaining market share in the Accelerated Flight Training industry by guaranteeing it's Accelerated Flight & Instrument Training services and continuing their complete and innovative "Turn Key Training Courses."
"We’re seeing a number of positive indications that our clients are turning more to the latest Avionics and increasingly insist upon actual training without the use of our simulators. We believe there is no substitute for actual. The antiquated technology of "Portable Simulators" used by some training organizations, reinforces our core belief that actual flying conditions cannot be replicated. We understand the cost of flying continues to increase, however, savings realized using a portable simulator simply cannot compete with actual flying time under ATC control.
"We continue to make headway by taking the positive and steady route, taking advantage of the fact we offer a variety of Accelerated Flight Training solutions which are particularly reassuring to our clients. These are exactly the kinds of messages our clients are looking for in order to respond and eliminate any apprehensions they may have towards accelerated courses."
"Our success is largely due to the quality of our Instrument Flight Instructors," says Montalte. The average age of an Instructor is 55. Instructors average 8,000 to 20,000 hours logged flight time and 2,500 to 8,000 hours of logged instrument time."
We're Nationwide" AFIT now has 48 highly trained and licensed Senior Instructors located across the United States with heavy concentrations in California, Denver, Texas, Arizona, Arkansas, Utah and Florida, with enormous activity on the East Coast and throughout the Midwest specializing in High Performance aircraft and the G1000. All are "Full-Time" instructors dedicated to AFIT and its core focus of training pilots to certification in 10 days with no prior training. In less time if some prior training has been achieved. If a client finishes his or her course earlier than what was quoted, they are not charged for days not utilized.
14 day Private Pilot Training courses are also available at many AFIT locations acorss the country.
Montalte states, "AFIT does not differ between IFR training and IFR finish up and refresher courses. All our training is important to the client and all clients receive undivided attention. Each client has individual needs, thus, different number of days required to complete their training depending upon previous experience, training and avionics on board."
He continued, "As far as we are aware, we are the only flight training organization in the United States and Europe that guarantees their 10 day IFR courses. The response to the Guarantee has been overwhelming and keeps our instructors busy "Full-Time", year round.
Montalte states, "We value the trust that our clients have shown in us. On behalf of every AFIT member, Senior Instructor and employee, let me assure you that our company will continue to protect the principles of our profession, maintain the highest standards of excellence, and provide each client with the quality services they have come to expect and deserve from AFIT."
