Timm Preusser recently earned his Master CFI accreditation for the 5th time!
Posted Dec 07, 2007 - 08:28 PM

AWE Celebrates European Aviation

Timm PREUSSER, Master CFI         
( Renew:  1Dec07 )
Kleinwallstadt  Germany

Timm Preusser recently earned his Master CFI accreditation for the 5th time.  Timm is a board member, chief CFI, and training officer at the Darmstadt Flying Club.  He also serves o­n the Cirrus Owners & Pilots Association (COPA) board of directors and is a Cirrus standardized instructor.

The National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) takes pride in announcing a significant aviation accomplishment o­n the part of Timm Preusser, chief flight instructor at the Darmstadt Flying Club and a resident of Kleinwallstadt, Germany.  Recently, Timm's designation as a Master CFI (Certificated Flight Instructor) was renewed by NAFI, his professional aviation association.  He was the first European Master and has held this professional accreditation continuously since 1999.

To help put this achievement in its proper perspective, there are approximately 91,000 CFIs in the United States.  Fewer than 600 of them have achieved that distinction thus far.  The last twelve national Flight Instructors of the Year were Master CFIs while Timm is o­ne of o­nly 6 European aviation educators to earn this prestigious "Master" title.  In the words of former FAA Administrator Marion Blakey, "The flight instructor is where the rubber meets the runway.  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 that is earned by candidates through a rigorous process of continuing professional activity and peer review.  Much like a flight instructor's certificate, it must be renewed biennially.  This process parallels the continuing education regimen used by other professionals to enhance their knowledge base while increasing their professionalism. 

Simply put, the Master Instructor designation is a means by which to identify those outstanding aviation educators, those "Teachers of Flight," who have demonstrated an o­ngoing commitment to excellence, professional growth, and service to the aviation community.  

Earning this designation is tantamount to having the words summa ***** laude emblazoned o­n an instructor's certificate.  These Masters truly represent the crème de la crème of our industry!  To publicly recognize these individuals and their noteworthy accomplishments, NAFI will be hosting its "Meet the Masters" breakfasts, to which Timm will be invited, during EAA's AirVenture in Oshkosh and Sun 'n Fun in Lakeland.  Any support that can be provided will be appreciated. 

NAFI is dedicated to providing support and recognition for America's aviation educators while helping them raise and maintain their level of professionalism.  It is also committed to providing a safe and effective learning environment for student pilots.  The Association was founded in 1967 and affiliated with EAA in 1995.

Please feel free to disseminate this information.  Questions regarding the Master Instructor program may be directed to 303-485-8136 or NAFIMasters@aol.com   Additional information is available at http://www.NAFIMasters.org/ and
