In the fourth episode of the Atlanta Aero Club webinar with Steve Champness and John & Martha King, we discover how safe it was to pilot aircraft decades ago, how to stay safe as a pilot and how they trained pilots across the country.
John and Martha King are two of the most recognized experts in in-flight instruction, and for over 40 years their school has delivered millions of courses to pilots in training. Through intimate video instruction, they have taught more pilots than anyone else in the history of aviation -- teaching more than half the pilots in the United States to fly. They are the first and only husband and wife to both hold every category and class of FAA pilot and instructor certificates.
John and Martha have been champions for the cause of improving the risk management practices of general aviation pilots and they speak to thousands of pilots each year on aviation safety. They have flown as pilots in every continent of the world except Antarctica, including a trip completely around the world via the length of Russia.
Some of their recent Awards and Recognitions include:
- National Aviation Hall of Fame
- Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals (OBAP) Founders and Pioneers Hall of Fame
- AOPA’s Eight Who Made It Great Award
- National Aeronautic Association Distinguished Statesman of Aviation Award
- Jack J. Eggspuehler Award from the National Association of Flight Instructors
John and Martha King are known worldwide for their contributions to aviation and pilot preparedness. Among pilots, King Schools is a household name for their life-long dedication to making aviation training accessible to all.
