** Hidden Costs – We publish our costs, number of days in the course and airplane hours allotted so nothing is hidden. If your shopping other flight schools make sure you are looking at apples to apples. We want all our students to become great pilots and we know that it will take more than the basic bare bones.

Certified Flight Instructor – As a CFI you can now teach your own students how to solo, receive their recreation pilot, sport pilot, or private pilot certificate. The CF! is not limited to only introducing flying to pilots but can also teach the commercial pilot certificate. After 24 months of experience you then can teach others to become CFl’s themselves. A benefit of a flight instructor certificate is to get paid to fly instead of paying to fly. Prerequisites include a commercial pilot certificate.


Instrument Flight Instructor – This instructor certificate allows you to teach others how to fly in instrument conditions or others how to receive their instrument flight instructor certificate.  Also, as an instrument flight instructor you can give instrument proficiency checks. A knowledge test and practical test are required.

Ground Instructor – There are two different types of ground instructor certificates, the advanced ground instructor certificate, or the instrument grow1d instructor certificate .. By taking only a written test you can become one.  With this certificate you can teach other students the ground portion towards a certificate. When a flight instructor certificate and an 80% pass rate accompany this certificate after two years, a gold seal on an instructor certificate may be obtained.
