Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a USA-based flight school with training centers in Arizona, Texas and Europe, announced today setting a record on their status as the world leader in number of specialized master instructor pilots on staff. APS now has five Master Certified Flight Instructor - Aerobatic (MCFI-A) instructors on their team, more than any other training organization.

For perspective on this achievement, there are approximately 97,000 CFIs in the United States. Fewer than 800 of those aviation educators have achieved the status of Master CFI with only 32 of those instructors attaining the Master CFI - Aerobatic designation. "Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) places significant and well-placed emphasis on the critical importance of instructor professionalism, quality assurance and instructional effectiveness." said Sandy Hill, president and co-founder of the Master Instructor Continuing Education Program (MICEP), the international accrediting authority for the Master Instructor designation, "APS should be congratulated on being the established leader in having the most active MCFI-Aerobatic designated instructors on staff of any training organization in the world today."

The MICEP Master Instructor designation is a national accreditation recognized by the FAA and available to other flight instructors around the world. 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. In the words of former FAA Administrator Marion Blakey, "The Master Instructor accreditation singles out the best that the right seat has to offer."
