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.

At Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology, we know something about what it takes to become a pilot. After all, we’ve been educating and training civilian and military flyers since 1928. Today’s aviation industry is very different from what it was more than eighty years ago. Tomorrow’s aviation industry will be still more different, shaped by technologies now in the testing phase and regulations that have yet to be written. What’s certain about aviation is that it attracts adventurous characters, year after year. Spartan College presents this guide to earning your commercial pilot’s wings, along with career progression options. Step One: Get to Know the FAA The aviation industry in the United States is regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a division of the Department of Transportation. The FAA oversees every aspect of the operation of civilian airspace, from the design and manufacture of aircraft to airport operation. It also confers licenses and certifications on pilots, flight instructors, and aviation maintenance technicians. Over the course of your pilot training, you will prepare for many written, oral, and practical tests administered by the FAA to earn your licenses. If you are serious about becoming a pilot, it’s a good idea to become familiar with the FAA before your first flight school course. Visit FAA.gov to read news, training manuals, and other information related to the aviation industry. Step Two: Get a Medical Exam and Student Pilot Certificate Pilots, especially pilots who wish to fly passenger aircraft someday, need to be in good physical condition. The FAA requires all pilots, including student pilots, to receive a medical examination from an Aviation Medical Examiner (AME). AMEs are private physicians who receive training and authorization from the FAA. You can locate a nearby AME through the FAA’s AME Database at http://www.faa.gov/pilots/amelocator/. You will initially want a Third-Class Medical Certificate, which is required for student pilots, private pilots, and recreational pilots. The AME will check your
