There is something for every aviation educator at our CFI-PRO™ clinic on October 2-3, 2019 at AOPA (KFDK). If you are new to aviation education, this clinic will accelerate your mastery and proficiency. If you have been in the business forever, this clinic will invigorate you and provide new ideas and excitement to fire up your passion for education again. And senior chief instructors who participate will get a curriculum to standardize their future professionals.
We offer two amazing days of classes, seminars, and networking from the industry’s best educators for only $375. The flight portion is optional and available in your plane at an additional charge. There will be a keynote dinner the night before day one to meet our team and network with your peers.
We are specifically targeting the “persistent problem” of LOC-I in general aviation. The solution is to drill down and improve fundamental skills and encourage our clients to practice out of their “comfort zone.” (SAFE resources)
The curriculum includes a syllabus of "Expanded Envelope Maneuvers" from respected and award-winning instructors to rebuild skills and set a new standard of competence in our aviation community. These adapt concepts and best practices from upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT) programs for use in normal and utility category aircraft. This approach allows instructors to lay a solid foundation for UPRT that is scalable to every flight school with trained CFI-PRO™ instructors.
SAFE's CFI-PRO™ Inspiration
Our inspiration for this program is the 20 year old Orlando FSDO Enhanced CFI Program which in the first two years was able to reduce instructional accidents in their very busy flight district by an astounding 60%. Elevating aviator excellence has a proven effect on safety. We want to scale this to the entire pilot population through the instructors.
SAFE's CFI-PRO™ Clinic - Closing the Gap Between "Good to Great!"
Our 80% drop-out rate in aviation education has become an accepted embarrassment we live with instead of fix. A comprehensive AOPA study identified the CFI as the key reason flight students either stay and succeed or abandon their dreams. As in LOC-I, the aviation educator is the “impingement point” we need to improve. This program will include resources to improve your educator effectiveness. (SAFE Resources)
