Zoan Harclerode of Rocky Mountain Flight Training Center

Peterson AFB Aero Club Instructor Wins 2017 National Title

Zoan Harclerode of Rocky Mountain Flight Training Center (Peterson AFB Aero Club) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is a solid citizen of her aviation community whose passion and care inspires her students. That is why she is the Flight Training Experience Award National Best Flight Instructor for 2017, awarded by AOPA (Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association), which is the world’s largest civil aviation organization with over 400k members in 75 countries. Harclerode works with military veterans and other students always taking time to meet the individual’s needs, whether that means help completing Veterans Administration paperwork, preparing study materials, or receiving some additional ground school to grasp a challenging bit of flight training learning. “Zoan was described as a consummate professional, customer-service oriented, and an excellent teacher,” said Chris Moser, director of AOPA’s Flight Training Initiative. Zoan was also the recipient of the “Western Region Best Flight Instructor Award” in August 2017. “The best thing is seeing people reach their dreams,” Harclerode said on accepting her award. “I’m very blessed to have a wonderful group of students who believe in us.”
