Flight Instructor

Whether you’re interested in teaching others to fly or are simply a flying buff yourself, flight instructor courses offer a way to transition into this career or simply pursue your hobby. Taking these courses will further your piloting capabilities or give you a broader window into the world of flight.

You may be wondering, exactly what is a flight instructor course anyway? Flight instructor courses offer step-by-step, comprehensive instruction in manning different types of aircraft, most notably single-engine planes. Typical courses combine classroom instruction with hands-on flying time. Minimum requirements for flying times vary by country and institution. Flight instructor courses are offered by accredited schools all over the world and start at various times of the year. Courses are time-based rather than semester-based because of the sequential nature of aviation instruction.

Individuals choose to take flight instructor courses for a variety of reasons, although primarily to gain their instructor’s license. The courses offer thorough training in aviation practices and aeronautics.

The costs associated with flight instructor courses vary considerably. Primary considerations include the location of the school or academy, the amount of flying time required, and fuel costs.

Individuals who take flight instructor courses, and particularly those who complete a flight instructor program, benefit from a highly specialized field that virtually ensures a job is waiting for them at the end of their training. Indeed, the rate of employability of flight instructors is in the 90th percentile or higher, which is good news in this economy. Added advantages of taking these courses include increased knowledge of aviation history, design, and performance.

There are many opportunities to take flight instructor courses in the United States and around the world. There are also numerous online course options offered that are both lecture- and flight-simulation based.
