School Receives Flight Training Excellence Award for Third Consecutive Year

NASHVILLE FLIGHT TRAINING RECOGNIZED AS DISTINGUISHED FLIGHT SCHOOL
BY THE WORLD’S LARGEST AVIATION ASSOCIATION

Nashville Flight Training has been recognized again for a high standard of accomplishment in flight training by the world’s largest aviation association, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). The flight school has been named a recipient of the 2017 Flight Training Experience Award and recognized as a Distinguished Flight School, a title given to highest-scoring flight schools from AOPA’s annual Flight Training Experience Survey. This is the third consecutive year Nashville Flight Training has been honored with a spot on the prestigious aviation industry list.

“This year’s group of schools and CFIs were especially close as we analyzed the results of the 2017 Flight Training Experience Survey,” said Chris Moser, director of AOPA’s Flight Training Initiative. “It gives me great confidence to both hear about some incredible flight training providers and to see how much their customers truly value them.”

AOPA’s Flight Training Excellence Awards were created to highlight the best flight training the industry has to offer, recognizing best practices in excellent customer service, quality education, community development, and sharing knowledge. The 2017 awards were drawn from flight students and pilots around the world who voluntarily reviewed their flight training experience last summer through an AOPA online customer satisfaction survey. The survey included reviews of 1,048 different flight schools and 2,012 individual flight instructors.

“We are honored to have a place again on this respected aviation industry list,” said Chris Erlanson, Nashville Flight Training president. “We’re proud of our instructors and support staff who share a passion for and commitment to excellence in aviation. I am thankful to the AOPA and our students for recognizing their hard work.”

NASHVILLE FLIGHT TRAINING FINALIZES COOPERATIVE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM WITH EMBRY-RIDDLE AERONAUTICAL UNIVERSITY WORLDWIDE

NASHVILLE, TENN. June 19, 2017 — Nashville Flight Training (NFT) and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide (ERAU-W) finalized an agreement offering NFT flight students an educational path to a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics degree while working to receive a pilot license. The educational program makes it possible for NFT students to complete training as fully licensed and rated commercial pilots with the aviation-related university degree necessary for a commercial pilot career in the airline industry.

“We are excited to finalize an agreement with Embry-Riddle for a cooperative education path for our flight students,” said Chris Erlanson, Nashville Flight Training owner and president. “This program offers our students an opportunity to receive an Embry-Riddle education while working toward a pilot license at our school, preparing them to enter the aviation industry as commercial pilots.”

The agreement comes at a good time, as various industry reports indicate the supply of qualified commercial pilots is not meeting the needs for pilots in the industry. This agreement will allow NFT pilots to start in their careers for a smaller airline and then move into the ranks of the major airlines.

“Embry-Riddle is delighted to join forces with Nashville Fight Training to provide a career pathway for ambitious men and women who want to learn to fly in the commercial aviation industry,” said Michael Kosher, director of business development and enrollment at Embry-Riddle. “We are excited to be part of this initiative.”
