FI(A) - Flight Instructor Qualification

FI(A) training will qualify you to serve as flight instructor in single-engine airplanes. FI(A) graduates need to be competent tutors up to at least PPL(A) student level, including preflight checks, post-flight debriefings, and theoretical instruction. We also offer the opportunity to expand your instructor qualifications further, e.g. for instrument flight or a different class of airplane. Our supplementary courses include CRI MEP, IRI, FI(A)g, and others; for some of these, your time spent as an instructor up to that point may count towards requirements.

Once you graduate from FI(A) and pass the instructor's skill test, then, assuming you are interested and you pass our application process, we will be happy to welcome you as a member of our own instructor team. Read more in the section Career.

"When I enrolled for the Professional Pilot program at the Czech Technical University years ago, I'd never flown a plane before. I decided to go with the integrated training course, and after a careful assessment of all the available alternatives, I chose to train with F AIR. To this day, I've never regretted it: prestigious flight school, first-class ground support, friendly atmosphere, professional staff, lots of planes, and home base at the charming Benešov Airport. Making it into an airliner cockpit is a long, demanding journey, but F AIR's first-class training made it a little easier for me."

Flight Training

Flight Instructor practical training starts with an entrance examination, which you need to pass for your training to be able to officially commence. A portion of your flight time will be spent in either the Cessna 150/152 or the Slingsby T67M, which are required for the mandatory spins training. You can gain the rest of the required flight hours in any single-engine plane, combined with a flight simulator.
