Flight instructors who want to improve their skills and level of professionalism will be heading to Florida next October for the first-ever National Association of Flight Instructors Summit.
NAFI has selected the Sun ’n Fun Campus at Lakeland Linder International Airport (KLAL) to host the inaugural summit. The event is slated for October 24-26, 2023.
The event, which the organization said is dedicated to professionalism in aviation education and training, will host current and prospective certified flight instructors, aviation leaders, industry advocates, government representatives, and media.
“NAFI’s selection of the Sun ’n Fun campus for the Summit reflects upon and reinforces both organizations’ commitment to excellence in aviation through education, mentorship, and advocacy,” NAFI president Paul Preidecker said.
The NAFI Summit is designed to bring stakeholders in the flight instruction community together to share best practices. This includes application of instructional techniques, as well as applying business skills.
The summit will also feature keynote speakers addressing the vital role of flight instructors, with an emphasis on continuous improvement in safety and customer service.
