Master Instructor Certificate

The Master Instructor Certificate acknowledges the contribution professional flight instructors make to the aviation community by recognising service and milestones in flight instruction.

The concept for the Master Instructor Certificate dates to the early 1990s when it was considered there should be some way of recognising flight instructors of long standing who have given dedicated service to the industry.

Whilst the Master Instructor Certificate is administered by the RFACA, recipients are not restricted to employees of RFACA member organisations.
