How To Become A Certified Flight Instructor

For people who love to fly, there’s nothing better than finding a career that pays you to spend your time above the clouds – but that doesn’t necessarily mean becoming a commercial or private pilot. A career as a flight instructor can be incredibly rewarding as you help people discover their full potential and love of flying. Here’s some advice from Monmouth Executive Airport’s flight school in NJ.

Requirements for a career as a certified flight instructor

First, you have to have a valid private pilot certificate from a recognized Part 61 or Part 141 flight school. After that, you have to successfully pass the Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) and Flight Instructor FAA Knowledge Test, and the accompanying Practical Test (consisting of an oral exam and flight test).
There are three courses you can enroll in:
• The CFI Certification Course – Basic flight instructor certification.
• The CFI – I Certification Course – Instrument Rating Course.
• The CFI – ME Course – Multi-Engine Rating Course.

One of the biggest obstacles for pilots interested in becoming flight instructors is the idea that these courses take years to achieve – but it isn’t true. Most pilots complete their training in 34-45 hours, including flight training, ground training and pre-post flight briefings.

Why become a CFI?
There are many reasons why pilots decide to become CFIs, but the most popular reason by far is to share an enthusiasm for flying with others. It is also a great way to increase your flying hours if you are aiming for a commercial pilot’s license. Many pilots also choose this career because it offers easier scheduling and hours that have less impact on family life. Whatever your reasons, being a CFI is a rewarding career choice for anyone who loves to fly.

How to prepare for flight training school in NJ

Planning ahead is an important part of any successful pilot’s career, so preparing for flight school is the perfect start. It will give you the edge you need to become a better pilot and give you the confidence that comes from knowing just what you are in for when you learn to fly.

  1. Flight simulators: This state-of-the-art technology is getting more realistic than ever before, making it the ideal way to get used to using the main aircraft controls, including the yoke, rudder and pedals. You can also try out different aircraft and basic maneuvers like climbing, descending and level flight. It very accessible too, as there are a wide range of flight simulator software programs that you can download straight to your home PC, including Prepar3D and X-Plane.
  2. Get to know the jargon: Flying, whether a career or a hobby, means learning to understand a huge range of jargon. English is also the international medium for pilots, so it’s important that your language skills are up to the task. Talking with pilots and flight instructors, listening in on live air traffic control online and researching flight terminology will help you get an edge.

How to choose the right flight school for private pilot certification

Learning to fly is one of life’s greatest adventures and becoming a private pilot means accessing one of the most elite and rewarding industries in the world. With this in mind, it makes sense that most people looking to enter this exciting industry are looking for flight schools which offer them the best training available. Here’s how to narrow down your search and find the best institution for you:

  1. Understand the difference between a Part 61 and Part 141 aviation school: These numbers refer to the parts of the Federal Aviation Regulations under which they operate and differ on their requirements for achieving certification. Part 61 schools require 40 flight hours for private pilot certification and 250 hours for commercial pilot certification. Part 141 schools require 35 hours and 190 hours for each respective certification.
  2. Ask about the flight instructors: The qualifications and experience your flight instructor has is vital because you’re going to be putting your life in their hands, so don’t hesitate to ask about them. Your primary instructor should be a certified flight instructor (CFI) and your instrument instructor should have an instrument instructor rating (CFII).
  3. Take an introductory lesson: This is a great way of not only experiencing a trail lesson firsthand but also seeing if the instructors are a good fit for you. Ask plenty of questions and get to know your instructor – he or she should be someone who expects exceptional results from you, who shows dedication towards helping students succeed and shows personal interest in you and your goals.
  4. Ask about the training airplanes: Be sure to ask how many training airplanes the school has and how they are maintained. This determines the availability of airplanes for training as well as how safe they are. This is especially important because training aircraft are flown more often and hard than other aircraft. Flight schools which have their own onsite maintenance facilities are generally able to have their aircraft serviced and repaired more frequently and easily, ensuring their aircraft are airworthy and available for lessons. Generally, schools with three or more aircraft are also more able to be flexible for lesson schedules.
