Rochester Aviation News
Rochester Aviation is proud to announce Kelby's achievement of receiving his Master CFI accreditation. Of the nearly 100,000 CFI's in the country, only 700 have been recipients of the MCFI designation. For this reason, Master CFI is considered one of the most prestigious honors in Flight Training.
Way to Go Kelby.
AOPA Flight Training Execelence Award Winner
Rochester Aviation of Skyhaven Airport, Rochester NH, was awarded by AOPA, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, an ‘Outstanding Flight School’ Award at the National AOPA Summit meeting on October 10th. Of the thousands of flight schools in America, over 500 were nominated for consideration by AOPA. The nominations were based on overall customer satisfaction and flight training excellence. Only five awards were presented representing the top one percent of nominated Schools. These schools are considered the National Leaders of the professional flight-training world. Gold Seal Flight Instructor and Commercial Pilot Kelby Ferwerda started Rochester Aviation three years ago. The growth of Ferwerda’s flight school has continued strongly and has developed into a community based aviation environment. The Rochester Aviation community has been driven by social gatherings, educational events, and of course Flying! Over the next few months Rochester Aviation will be working with Flight Training Magazine and AOPA to better spotlight the driving force behind Rochester Aviation’s success.
