Nominations for 2023 Flight Instructor Hall of Fame inductees are now open and will be accepted until April 1, 2023. Administered by the National Association of Flight Instructors, Flight Instructor Hall of Fame inductees exemplify individuals who have made significant contributions to aviation education and flight instruction while also reflecting credit upon themselves and their profession. The Hall of Fame award highlights the important role flight instructors play as a foundation for the safety of the national air transportation system. NAFI does not take part in the judging; it merely oversees the process. 

NAFI Director of Program Development and Hall of Fame Administrator John Niehaus commented: “It is important to note that the Flight Instructor Hall of Fame is not a NAFI award, rather we administer the program on behalf of the entire aviation and flight training community. To maintain the integrity of the program, the judges represent a wide array of aviation professionals.” 

The Flight Instructor Hall of Fame judges include:

  • Greg Brown, retired U.S. Marine Corps aviator and current director of education and training services at the Helicopter Association International
  • Col. Julie Tizard, retired U.S. Air Force instructor and former Part 121 instructor pilot
  • Tom Turner, Executive Director of the American Bonanza Society Air Safety Foundation and former Hall of Fame inductee
  • Britney Tough, board member of Women in Aviation, extremely experienced and talented flight instructor
  • Barry Schiff, former Part 121 instructor pilot, celebrated AOPA author, and former Hall of Fame inductee
