A few of Stewart’s accomplishments while with SAFE include organizing SAFE’s Pilot Training Reform Symposium held in 2011, administering the Flight Instructor Open Forum series of presentations created by SAFE members for use by the FAA, spearheading SAFE’s Pilot Proficiency Project, and establishing the online quarterly SAFE – The Magazine. Stewart commented, “I fully expect to remain connected to all the wonderful people who have been involved with and supported SAFE over the last five-and-a-half years. I also intend to remain active as a flight instructor and active in SAFE.”
