Congratulations are in order for a few of St.Charles Flying Service's Flight Instructors, who were recently recognized by the Greater St.Louis Flight Instructors Association at the recent Super Safety Seminar held at the Maryland Heights Convention Center.  Recognized were David Pressy as Regional Flight Instructor of the year, along with Nick Loftus who was the recipient of the Rick Albrecht New Flight Instructor of the year award. Both of these awards are indicative of the great staff of instructors employed by St.Charles Flying Service.
