7 Day Class

We offer classes once a month specifically for CFI Training. This class builds on what you learn in the online course. This is where you learn to do what a CFI does by Actually Doing It!

Flying and Teaching 

January 2020' KPAO CFI Class 

During your CFI Training, you'll spend about 15 hours in the right seat of a 172 learning how to teach all of the private and commercial maneuvers. You'll give a pre-flight briefing on what you'll teach in flight and then get a comprehensive debriefing after the flight on how it went. You'll also spend a half-day getting your spin endorsement this week. Getting you ready for the checkride, in particular, the Oral part of the test is an everyday part of the 7 days. Its ground, flight, ground flight - rinse and repeat for 7 days.

"A big shout out to Mike Shifflet and his team for putting their best to make the best instructors in town. I feel proud to be one of them

Yuran D, 2018', FL 

I finished my CFI on the first try so a HUGE thanks to you and the ground school you put on. Worth Every Penny!

Kevin G, 2019', CA

CFI Bootcamp is not a "diploma mill". Mike's oft-stated goal is to make you a competent instructor with an eye to the eventual checkride. This approach pays off.
