2013 AOPA Outstanding Flight School
September 25, 2013 – Riverside Flight Academy, Riverside Municipal Airport, Riverside, Calif.
Flight Training Excellence finalists announced
AOPA has selected 12 top flight training professionals and 11 flight schools as finalists in its annual Flight Training Awards. A top winner in each category will be named in October at AOPA Aviation Summit 2013 in Fort Worth, Texas.
The 2013 awards are drawn from 3,375 respondents who voluntarily reviewed their flight training experience through an AOPA online poll. The process yielded an evaluation of 508 different flight schools and 956 individual flight instructors.
Based on the poll results, AOPA will name a best flight school and best flight instructor from the finalists listed below. The individual winners will be announced at the AOPA Flight Training Summit in Fort Worth on Oct. 9—just a day before the launch of AOPA Aviation Summit at the same location. All finalists will be recognized as an “Outstanding Flight School” or “Outstanding Flight Instructor” and be presented with a plaque at the Oct. 9 announcement.
