APS Texas RB Instruction

The Master Instructor accreditation singles out the best that the right seat has to offer.

Aviation Performance Solutions, LLC is very pleased to announce that Randall ‘Random’ Brooks has earned his Master CFI – Aerobatic accreditation. A full time instructor with Aviation Performance Solutions (dba APS Emergency Maneuver Training) based in Arlington, Texas, Randall specializes in spin and recovery training as well as formation aerobatics. Mr. Brooks was accredited as a Master CFI-Aerobatic (Certificated Flight Instructor-Aerobatic) by Master Instructors LLC, the international accrediting authority for the Master Instructor designation as well as the FAA-approved Master Instructor Program. Additionally, he is one of five (5) MCFI-As teaching with APS. With Randall’s accreditation, APS now holds the world record in the most active Master CFI-Aerobatic instructors working for any one organization.

To help put these achievements in their proper perspective, there are approximately 97,000 CFIs in the United States. Fewer than 800 of those aviation educators have achieved that professional distinction thus far. The last 18 national Flight Instructors of the Year were Master CFIs (see: http://www.GeneralAviationAwards.org/) while Randall Brooks is one of only 43 Texas aviation educators to earn this prestigious “Master” title and one of only 32 worldwide to earn aerobatic accreditation.

In the words of former FAA Administrator Marion Blakey, “The Master Instructor accreditation singles out the best that the right seat has to offer.”

The Master Instructor designation is a national accreditation recognized by the FAA. Candidates must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to excellence, professional growth, and service to the aviation community, and must pass a rigorous evaluation by a peer Board of Review. The process parallels the continuing education regimen used by other professionals to enhance their knowledge base while increasing their professionalism. Designees are recognized as outstanding aviation educators for not only their excellence in teaching, but for their engagement in the continuous process of learning — both their own, and their students’. The designation must be renewed biennially and significantly surpasses the FAA requirements for renewal of the candidate’s flight instructor certificate.
