Certified Flight Instructor

Give the Gift of Flight, and Build Flight Hours

Flight trainees can be hired immediately after receiving a Commercial license by becoming a Certified Flight Instructor or Multi-Engine Instructor. After you receive your Commercial license, the next step for most people is to obtain their CFI, CFII and MEI ratings so that they can accumulate the required 1,500 flight hours to become an airline pilot – all while getting paid to teach others how to fly.

  2. Hold at least a 3rd Class Medical
