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.
