Flying Club Manager Earns Master CFI Accreditation

The National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) takes pride in announcing a significant aviation accomplishment on the part of David St George, a resident of Ithaca and chief flight and ground instructor at East Hill Flying Club at the Ithaca Tompkins County Airport. Recently, David’s accreditation as a Master CFI (Certificated Flight Instructor) was renewed by NAFI, his professional aviation association.

To help put this achievement in its proper perspective, there are approximately 90,000 CFIs in the United States.  Fewer than 500 of them have achieved that distinction thus far.  The last eleven national Flight Instructors of the Year were Master CFIs while David is one of only 13 New York State aviation educators who has earned this prestigious “Master” title.  He has held that title continuously since 1998.
