Flight Instructor

Eichelberger Aviation offers advanced specialty courses for the following certificates:

Certified Flight Instructor
Certified Flight Instrument Instructor

In order to obtain a Flight Instructor Certificate, you must hold a Commercial Pilot Certificate, and you must successfully pass the Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI), and Flight Instructor FAA Knowledge Test and a Practical Test. The Practical Test consists of an oral examination and a flight test.

Usually, to be able to obtain a job with an airline, corporate, or charter company, requires a lot more flight time and experience than the 200-300 hours of flight time gained while earning your ratings. One way to increase your flight time and experience is to become a Flight Instructor.

Flight Instructors teach a various levels. They offer primary instruction for the Private Pilot Certificate as well as more advanced instruction for a Commercial Certificate, Instrument Rating, Multi-Engine Rating, and Airline Transport Pilot Certificate. When you are teaching your students, you can log those hours as your flight time, and get paid for those hours, while you work as a Flight Instructor.

The job of Flight Instructor is considered a steppingstone to more lucrative positions. But some remain in the teaching field. If certain high standards are attained, they can qualify for the Federal Aviation Administrations (FAA) "Gold Seal", which identifies them as a superior teacher.

Requirements

- Be at least 18 years of age

- Hold a commercial pilot certificate

- Hold an instrument rating (for helicopter CFI)

- Be able to read, speak, and understand the English language

- Obtain at least a current third-class medical certificate

- Have logged at least 250 hours (200 for helicopters) and the required        training for the CFI rating per FAA regulations

- Pass a knowledge test as well as the practical test

 

 

 

Adding an instrument rating to your flight instructor certificate allows you to provide instrument training for the issuance of an instrument rating, a type rating not limited to VFR, or the instrument training required for commercial pilot and airline transport pilot certificate. The flight instructor certificate alone does not offer these privileges.

In order to provide the instrument training described above, a flight instructor must hold an instrument rating on both his or her pilot certificate and flight instructor certificate that is appropriate to the category and class of aircraft used.

A flight instructor with an instrument rating is often called a “CFII” or “C-F-double-I” for “certificated flight instructor – instrument,” although it’s not the technically correct term.
