FAQ

How long will it take to earn my CFI Instrument?

There is no hour requirement for training to obtain the CFI Instrument. Working with an instructor, you will both make the determination as to when you are ready to take the required exams.

What can I do once I have my CFI Instrument certificate?

With a Certified Flight Instructor Instrument certificate, you can train students to fly under instrument meteorological conditions. You are also authorized to endorse students to take both the required knowledge, and practical exams to obtain their instrument rating.

Once I get my CFI Instrument, what do I have to do to keep it current?

If you already have a CFI, obtaining the CFI Instrument will reset your expiration date for 24 more calendar months. If you are training prospective instrument pilots, you must remain instrument current if you are instructing in aircraft in actual instrument meteorological conditions.

What will my training involve?

Your training will involve a certain amount of dual instruction, both ground and flight and/or simulator with an authorized instructor.
