The Certified Flight Instructor Certificate allows the pilot to teach Private and Commercial students. It is a monumental change in the pilots knowledge and responsibilities. Considerable time is spent during ground instruction on subjects such as principles of flight, navigation and flight planning, regulations, aircraft system operations, etc.
While piloting procedures, technical subjects and instructing techniques can be taught, communications with the students from your command position while keeping the aircraft upright, sometimes presents new challenges.
The course, based on 2-3 sessions per week, is normally about 2.5 months.
