The Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) works to create a safer aviation environment by:

- Supporting aviation educators with mentoring opportunities, educational resources, and other benefits
- Inspiring professionalism through promotion and recognition of excellence and enhanced education
- Representing aviation educators through interaction with the aviation industry and government
- Promoting learning in all areas of aviation for everyone at every level



Aviation educators are the gateway for anyone aspiring to be part of the aviation community, be it for pleasure, business, commercial or military aviation. Although today’s pilots and aviation professionals have access to highly sophisticated systems and resources, the best safety device remains a well-trained individual possessing the knowledge, skill, and understanding to safely and competently handle any aviation challenge.
