Dr. Tim Brady, dean of the College of Aviation at Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach campus, has joined the Board of Directors of the National Association of Flight Instructors.
NAFI announced his selection at EAA AirVenture 2012 in Oshkosh, Wis., stating that the organization values Brady’s “unique input and experience in the flight training community.”
Brady joined Embry-Riddle in 1998 and oversees the College of Aviation’s five academic departments: Aeronautical Science (Professional Pilot); Flight Training; Applied Aviation Sciences; Aviation Maintenance Science; and Doctoral Studies. The college operates 64 aircraft and 23 flight-training devices. Brady is the founder of the National Training Aircraft Symposium held annually at Embry-Riddle.
“There’s about to be an explosion of need for properly trained pilots to meet the world demand for air transportation,” Brady said. “I’m honored to have been asked to lend my expertise to that problem.”
