FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mesa, Arizona – 16 December 2011: Aviation Performance Solutions, LLC is very pleased to announce that Brian “Rotor” Willett has earned his Master CFI – Aerobatic accreditation. A full time instructor with Aviation Performance Solutions, Rotor has over 30 years of aviation. A former USAF Command Pilot and Flight Examiner (SEFE), Rotor is an ATP SEL & MEL, Comm Inst Rotorcraft-Helicopter, Comm SES, CFI/CFII Airplane and CFI/CFII Helicopter certified pilot with six type ratings. A DESERT STORM combat veteran with over 8,000 hours of global flight experience and 1,500 hours of inflight instruction in both civilian business jet and military operations, Rotor brings a wealth of experience to all of APS’ programs.
To put this achievement in its proper perspective, there are approximately 96,000 CFIs in the United States. Fewer than 700 of those aviation educators have achieved this professional distinction thus far. The last 16 national Flight Instructors of the Year were Master CFIs (see: http://www.GeneralAviationAwards.org/) while Rotor is one of only 25 Arizona teachers of flight to earn this prestigious “Master” title and one of only 26 nationwide 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.
