“We are very proud of what the senior leadership team that we recruited to manage and run the business has been able to accomplish over the last 6 years,” said Robert Shuford, Managing Partner at Clovis Point. “It has been an extremely gratifying experience to see the Company not only continue pushing the boundaries of innovation in aviation distance learning but also the operating results that they achieved as a biproduct of these efforts.
