Are you a commercial pilot certificate holder interested in advancing your career? Consider earning your Certified Flight Instructor Rating. Becoming an FAA-approved flight instructor can add another important skill to your resume—one that employers want. It can also give you the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to keep the aviation dream alive, by helping other pilots earn their wings.
Additionally, the industry is going to need more instructors over the next several years, according to some industry experts.
A global shortage of airline pilots, plus the addition of new requirements for co-pilots, means that more instructors are needed to train new private and commercial pilots. Also, the current lack of experienced airline pilots may entice experienced flight instructors with the right qualifications back into regular flying jobs. There may never be a better time for you to earn your CFI.
In this article, we explain the steps towards earning your CFI.
