A Flight Instructor – Airplane certificate allows you to teach students how to fly. As a CFI, you’ll be able to teach students working towards a Private or Commercial Pilot Certificate.
Here’s some good info to know:
- While there is no minimum required flight time needed to become a CFI, it usually takes students about 10 hours of flight training.
- CFI Training entails learning how to teach maneuvers you were taught throughout Private and Commercial, all while demonstrating them from the right seat.
- The majority of CFI training is ground knowledge, from FOI’s to technical subject matters. To get the most out of your CFI training we’ll connect you with other students in case you want to work on lesson plans or study together.
- 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.
