Karcz renews Master Certificated Flight Instructor accreditation

By Natalie Blair

Thomas Karcz, assistant professor of aviation at Kansas State University Salina, has earned his Master Certificated Flight Instructor accreditation for a second time.

Karcz is a Society of Aviation Flight Educators member and specializes in progress checks as well as certified flight instructor and multiengine airplane training.

The national accreditation is recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration. Fewer than 800 of the approximately 97,000 certified flight instructors in the nation have achieved the master distinction. The designation must be renewed biennially and surpasses the FAA's requirements for renewal of the candidate's flight instructor certificate.
