Certified Flight Instructor

Become an aviation instructor by getting a certificate as a certified flight instructor.

No matter what your final aviation goals are, becoming a flight instructor is a great way to achieve them. As a flight instructor, you can:

  • Earn an income as an instructor while still logging flight hours
  • Retain all of the knowledge you’ve gained by reviewing it with your students
  • Challenge yourself to develop a new skill set
  • Develop your skill as a captain
  • Work and network in the field

Becoming a certified flight instructor is a great way for you to find quality employment as a pilot with low flight hours—and it gives you the ability to continue logging hours with the least expense to you.
