been vying for top status in the annual AOPA Flight Training Experience
Awards for several years, hoping their students will highlight them in an
online survey. The awards are the Michelin stars in a flight school or instructor's pedigree, a "Best" designation on their doorway or website denoting a
Zagat-worthy location. But, like so much of the world in this COVID-19 climate, the awards are not the same this year. Many schools have had to close
their doors and many instructors in states with quarantine rules cannot fly
with students.
However, what has not changed is the
passion and resiliency of the flight training
community and so, while there will not be an
award ceremony or top status this year, there
will be a celebration of the flight training
community. The AOPA You Can Fly program
announced the Flight Training Experience
Project in May.
"We believe it is important to celebrate the
value and significance of the flight training
community in this difficult time," said Chris
Moser, AOPA senior director of flight training
education. "With the project, we will focus
on the community, highlighting the inspiring
stories of the flight training community, which
has come together in support of one another
to overcome the obstacles of climate and
economy, and proved resilient in the face of
adversity."
The Flight Training Experience Project is
