Greenville, SC – Stratos Aviation has been recognized for its excellence in flight training by The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), the world’s largest aviation association. The flight school has been awarded the title of Outstanding Flight School and is one of only ten flight schools in the U.S. to earn this recognition.
AOPA’s Flight Training Excellence Awards were created to highlight the best flight training the industry has to offer. "This year's winners are great examples of high quality and effective flight training. The recognition is well deserved," said Chris Moser, AOPA’s senior manager of flight training initiatives. “The Flight Training Excellence Awards were created to recognize best practices in flight training—excellent customer service, quality education, community development, and sharing knowledge. We are excited to spotlight their excellent work.”
The 2016 awards were drawn from flight students and pilots who voluntarily reviewed their flight training experience last summer through an AOPA online poll. The process yielded an evaluation of 789 different flight schools and 1,515 individual flight instructors.
