Noted Flight Trainer Earns Exceptional Honor

In each of the past 45 years, the General Aviation Awards program and the FAA have partnered to recognize a small group of aviation professionals in the fields of flight instruction, aviation maintenance, avionics and safety for their contributions to aviation safety and education.

This awards program is a cooperative effort between the FAA and more a dozen industry sponsors. The selection process begins with local FAA Safety Team managers at Flight Standards District Offices (FSDO) and then moves on to the eight regional FAA offices. Panels of aviation professionals from within those four fields then select national winners from the pool of regional winners.

When all was said and done, the selection team chose Max Trescott, MCFI/MGI, of Mountain View, CA as the 2008 Nat’l Certificated Flight Instructor of the Year.

Max is an independent Palo Alto-area flight and ground instructor specializing in instrument and technically advanced aircraft training (www.sjflight.com). A Master CFI, Master Ground Instructor, and FAASTeam representative, Max is also a noted aviation author and speaker and founder of Glass pit Publishing. He represented the San Jose FSDO area (Jack Hocker, FPM) as well as the FAA’s Western Pacific Region.

Max was licensed to fly as a teenager. He earned degrees in Psychology and Electrical Engineering from Swarthmore College and an MBA from NYU. He worked for 25 years in sales, marketing and management positions for Hewlett-Packard and now devotes full time to teaching flying, speaking, and publishing aviation training materials.

He holds an Airline Transport Pilot certificate and is an FAA Gold Seal CFI. He is recognized by the National ociation of Flight Instructors as a Master CFI. He’s a past President of Los Medicos Voladores or “Flying Doctors”, and regularly flew volunteer medical teams to Mexico in his Cessna T210.
