This course is designed to be a jumping-off point for several instructor ratings.
After taking this course you'll be prepared to take the Fundamentals of Instruction (FOI) test and then move on to take the written tests for your Basic and Advanced Ground Instructor ratings, and the Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) rating.
Becoming a Certified Flight Instructor allows you to get a job teaching others to fly. Many pilots heading for airline careers become instructors first so that they can gain experience and accumulate flight hours. You can't beat getting paid while flying! This is a five day course, usually taught in three evenings and a weekend, so that it will fit easily into the schedules of busy people.
The course fee is $450.00, and includes the test-prep manual and computerized testing supplement.
