The award recognizes the team’s dedication to aviation education and overall contribution to the flight training industry.

The Jeppesen Aviation Training Solutions team will be presented with the award in a ceremony this fall for its work over numerous years in developing quality flight training materials and products for the aviation training community, according to NAFI officials. 

This year’s award also recognizes the Jeppesen training team for its significant ongoing contributions to aviation education and dedication to advancing aviation. 

“We are truly honored to be presented with the 2009 Jack J. Eggspuehler Award from such a distinguished leader in the aviation industry,” said Mark Van Tine, Jeppesen president and chief executive officer.  “This award recognizes the excellence put forth by our Jeppesen Aviation Training Solutions team in developing the finest aviation education and flight training programs for the industry.” 

The National Association of Flight Instructors presents the award annually to an “individual or organization making a significant contribution to flight instructors, flight instruction or aviation education,” according to NAFI award guidelines. 

The award also recognizes the Jeppesen team’s dedication to excellence, safety and quality materials that has resulted in high quality training materials for instructors and students to use in flight training efforts, NAFI officials note.

The Eggspuehler Award is named for Jack J. Eggspuehler, a founder of the National Association of Flight Instructors and a member of the Flight Instructor Hall of Fame.  Eggspuehler served as president of the NAFI organization for more than 30 years.
