Certified Flight Instructor

Course Fee = $4,499 + Aircraft Hours

This course is intended for the initial certification of a flight instructor certificate (Airplane Single Engine Land). The course will begin with three days of ground school that cover everything you need to know to pass your flight instructor practical test and what you need to know once your training is complete.  This course assumes that your aeronautical knowledge is at least at a commercial pilot level. This may require you to brush up on your aeronautical knowledge. Verify that you have meet the prerequisites of the course, or call to discuss enrollment options. This course covers a lot of information quickly, so pre-studying materials will be beneficial. Please see our attached copy of the minimum pre-study materials to ensure that your knowledge is at the correct standards. We will work with you during the day, but you must work each night reviewing ground and flight items introduced that day, as well as previously taught subjects. Personal preparation and studying will allow you to pass the check ride with ease.

Other Information


The course fee option guarantees that one of our senior instructors will work with you each day on the ground and in the air.  The average length for the CFI is 10 days, so we will provide two extra days at no additional cost (up to 12 days included in the course fee).  If there is a weather or maintenance delay, you will not be charged for extra days to finish up.  However, if you require additional training or leave for any reason, you will then be charged an hourly or daily fee.
