The Live Ground school is Scenario driven. You learn to do what a CFI does by actually doing it!
Your CFI Training is 15 hours of teaching in the right seat of a 172 and spin endorsement this week
Here's How it works
You will complete our online course first. It’s 42 hours of solid content complete with assessments, a workbook and a Self-Study guide to walk you through the course. Most students budget 2 weeks to get this done. Take longer if you want, there is no time limit or schedule to follow. It’s all at your own pace..
7 Day Class
We offer classes once a month, specifically for CFI Training. This class builds on what you learned in the online course. It’ scenario driven and will include things like completing logbooks for a student pilot, private pilot and commercial pilot, Soloing a student pilot, taking a pilot from Rotorcraft Helicopter to Airplane Single Engine Land, How to teach aerodynamics, Creating lesson plans, Using our lesson plans, Critique and help with presenting lesson plans, Practical Fundamentals of Instruction and so much more.

It's Checkride Day

Flying and Teaching
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 check ride and in particular, the Oral part of the test is an everyday part of the 7 days. It’s ground, flight, ground flight - rinse and repeat for 7 days.
You'll take your checkride shortly after the 7 days of flying and teaching. If you prepare before you show up with proficiency in the right seat and the spin endorsement then your Checkride could be on the last day of the 7 days of flight and teaching.
