The National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) said in a news release that it plans to host 16 professional development center (PDC) sessions running Monday throung Friday at EAA AirVenture 2021 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. All sessions will take place at NAFI’s booth, #316, and they are open to member and non-member CFIs. “Launched in 2017, the PDC has become a valued source for flight instructors to get up-to-date content designed specifically for flight training,” NAFI said. NAFI is also well-known for its Master CFI accreditation program.
PDC sessions were created to broaden an instructor’s understanding of topics necessary to become successful teachers. NAFI said in a release: “This year’s speakers are all well-known in their fields assuring the highest quality content available to flight instructors at each event. The roster of presenters includes award winning aviators, an expert meteorologist, airline captains, entrepreneurs and business leaders, Master CFIs, DPEs and other valued experts.”
Bob Meder, NAFI’s chairman, said, “Over these past four years, I grow more grateful to the outstanding presenters who come to the NAFI tent volunteering to share their expertise with guests at the PDC. From rough beginnings, the PDC has become a must for flight instructors seeking high-end proficiency training during AirVenture.”
