Being a CFII allows you to train students to get their Instrument Rating, or become a CFII. You will also be able to provide the dual instruction needed to Commercial Pilot applicants who require the 10 hours of instrument time needed to earn their Commercial Pilot Certificate.
Looking to become a CFII? Our Flight School in Los Angeles offers CFII training to help you get your CFII add on.
Here’s some good info to know:
- There is no minimum flight time needed to become a CFII. Usually, your IFR proficiency will determine how much flight training you will need. We find that the average student takes about 7 hours of dual flight training to get signed off.
- Typically, if you fly more frequently, you will retain knowledge from each flight better, and will spend less money overall during training. We recommend flying three days per week for best knowledge retention.
