Getting to the Airlines

To get to the airlines, it’s important to understand the basics of flight training from Day 1. At CFA, we pair students up so they can study together and fly together to save money on flights while they build their time for various ratings.

Our instructors are always learning!

We believe that as our instructors continue to grow, learn and excel in their field we all benefit from their success. This last month, Dylan Gourdin CFI/CFII, successfully trained for and earned his Multi-Engine rating in our Piper Aztec.


This past month, Elayne Humphrey (CFI/CFII/MEI) added to her title the honor of Master CFI. The NAFI Master Flight Instructor program confers a national accreditation to aviation educators based on a system of advanced professional standards and peer review. It identifies the practitioners of aviation education who have reached the highest level of instructional activity, educational experience, and professional service to the flight-training community—the true masters of aviation instruction—and it publicly recognizes these “teachers of flight” to provide a professional standard to which all aviation educators can aspire.
