National Association of Flight Instructors

Founded in 1967, NAFI is dedicated exclusively to "raising and maintaining the professional standing of the flight instructor in the aviation community." Through the years, NAFI has kept that pledge. Now, more than ever before, we are moving to enhance this original commitment.

NAFI is not only the national association that serves the full spectrum of the flight instructor community, but also maintains the finest benefits package available for everyone from the independent instructor to those teaching at flight schools. NAFI recognizes that flight instructors are truly the "teachers of flight" as well as the front line for "quality control" in our aviation world.

The association’s efforts focus on the needs of its members. While members benefit in different ways from NAFI membership, the most important reason for being a part of NAFI is supporting the flight instructor’s responsibility to all of aviation and commitment to professionalism.

Regardless of your specific area of expertise or interest in flight instruction, this is the best time for you to be a NAFI member. In NAFI, your role as a flight instructor is what we represent and support. New NAFI programs have been developed that benefit the flight instructor community and bring more value to your membership. JOIN TODAY and become more involved in NAFI’s efforts that will directly benefit you - the flight instructor. If you do not feel comfortable joining online, or would rather pay by check, please download this member join/renew application and mail it to us for processing.

NAFI Mission Statement
