Do you love your passion of flying so much that you want to pass it on to others by teaching them how to fly? The Flight Instructor Certificate can be a rewarding way to pass on your knowledge to students who want to build a career in aviation or just share a passion for flying. The Flight Instructor Certificate will challenge you to learn and understand topics that you can teach; making yourself and the students you are teaching better pilots. Firsthand experience handed down through many hours of practice and knowledge gained will help build your overall flight time so you can progress to the next journey in aviation. Can you flight instruct for a career? You sure can. Flight instruction is looked upon in the industry as a flight “time building” steppingstone. While this is true, the option to flight instruct for a career is certainly acceptable, as there are many student pilot applicants who want to learn how to fly.
The Certified Flight Instructor Certificate is typically the fastest and cheapest certificate to acquire. The majority of your training expense is ground instruction with a flight instructor. However, you will also pay the flight instructor for flight time as you display your growing teaching abilities in the air. The average cost for the Certified Flight Instructor course at Twin Cities Flight is about $6,000.
