Randal Rock "Randy" ROWLES, Master CFI-Helicopter

Randal R Rowles, a 3-time Master and SAFE member, recently became the first aviation educator to earn Master CFI-Helicopter accreditation.  Randy is the vice president of Night Flight Concepts (http://www.NightFlightConcepts.com/) where he specializes in night vision goggle training.  A member of the Helicopter Association International (HAI), he also serves as a FAASTeam representative in the FAA's Fort Worth FSDO area.  

Master Instructors LLC takes great pride in announcing a significant aviation accomplishment on the part of Randal R Rowles, the vice president of Night Flight Concepts and resident of Fort Worth, Texas.  Recently, Randy'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 Program."  He first earned this national professional accreditation in 2005 and is the first aviation educator to earn the new Master CFI-Helicopter designation.

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 15 national Flight Instructors of the Year were Master CFIs while Randy is one of only 32 Texas 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.

Please feel free to disseminate this information.  Questions regarding the Master Instructor Program may be directed to 303-485-8136 or MasterInstrs@aol.com   To learn more about the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE), visit http://SafePilots.org/  For more information about the Master Instructor Program and to locate other Masters, please visit the "Find a Master Instructor" section of www.MasterInstructors.org
