Modular course FI(A)

General informations

Get the theoretical basics and practical knowledge to get a flight instructor rating and start training new pilots.

If you have the desire and feel you have the skills to train new pilots, then the instructor rating is right for you. The instructor rating allows you to train new pilots for a PPL(A) license right after passing the exam. Initially you’ll teach under supervision until your first 100 hours of teaching, and then you can independently teach pilots without supervision or a »mentor«. After some experience, you can also decide to advance to CRI, IRI, and another higher level in TRI.
