Bill Schroeder earns Master CFI designation for the 7th time
William H Schroeder, a 7-time Master and charter SAFE member, recently
renewed his Master CFI accreditation. Bill, the CAP's Nevada Wing
check pilot examiner, is an independent flight and ground instructor
in the Reno-Tahoe area. A FAASTeam representative in the FAA's Reno
FSDO area, he was recently named the 2011 Western Pacific Region
FAASTeam Representative of the Year.
Master Instructors LLC takes great pride in announcing a significant
aviation accomplishment on the part of William H Schroeder, the
2011 Northwest Mountain Region FAASTeam Representative of the Year
and resident of Carson City, Nevada. Recently, Bill's accreditation
as a Master CFI (Certificated Flight Instructor) was renewed by
Master Instructors LLC, the international accrediting authority
for the Master Instructor designation as well as the FAA-approved
"Master Instructor Programä." He first earned this national professional
accreditation in 1999, has held it continuously since then, and
is one of only 13 worldwide to earn the credential seven times.
To help put these achievements in their proper perspective, there
are approximately 93,000 CFIs in the United States. Fewer than 700
of those aviation educators have achieved that distinction thus
far. The last 16 national Flight Instructors of the Year were Master
CFIs while Bill is one of only 5 Nevada teachers of flight to earn
this prestigious "Master" title.
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.
