Mentor magazine, where my writing occasionally appears is the official publication of the National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI). NAFI is an excellent organization, each and every flight instructor should make it a priority to be involved with NAFI. The bi-monthly magazine is just one of the many benefits of membership from an organization aimed towards making flight training safer and more efficient!
