Local Flight Instructor Recognized for Flight Training Excellence by National Association

[Jacksonville, Florida, November 9, 2021] –Jackie Anderson, a former flight instructor with Sterling Flight Training and a Republic Airways first officer, has been recognized for her high standard of instruction by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), the world’s largest aviation association. Anderson has been awarded a spot on the Flight Training Experience Awards as a Distinguished Flight Instructor, a title given to high scoring flight instructors from You Can Fly’s 2021-22 Flight Experience Survey.

The Flight Training Experience Survey was created to highlight the best flight training the industry has to offer. “Finding the right balance between professional service and a personal touch can be a challenge for any business,” said Chris Moser, You Can Fly’s Senior Director of Flight Training Education. “This year’s results showed that these flight training providers are not only striking the balance, but they are knocking it out of the park. The terms ‘family’ and ‘high quality instruction’ were a big theme this year. You can’t ask for more than that!”

“Sterling puts a strong emphasis on hiring quality instructors and pairing each student with the right instructor for their flight training goals, schedule and personality,” said Wayne Heller, CEO of Sterling Flight Training. “We are honored to have had Jackie instruct with us for a number of years and are happy to see her receive this well-earned recognition. We know she is applying the same level of dedication and professionalism in her new airline pilot career.”
