Central Flying Service of Little Rock on Wednesday marked a key milestone, with its Chief Flight Instructor Mike Jones and student Kristine Beard completing 475,000 hours of flight training at Arkansas' oldest continually operated flight school.

CFS is also the nation's largest fixed base operator, measured by square footage. It is engaged in aircraft sales, charter flying services and aircraft maintenance too.

Its flight school is also one of the nation's longest continually operated flight schools.

CEO Dick Holbert, son of CFS founder Claud Holbert, received an award from the FAA and a National Air Transportation Association Aviation Milestone Award commemorating the hours and 78 years of continuous service to the industry. CFS was one of NATA's earliest members.

NATA Executive Vice President Tim Obitts and FAA Safety Team Program Manager Heather Metzler attended the event.
