At roughly 9.8 million square kilometres, the U.S. is the world’s third-largest country in size and population and one of the most ethnically diverse and With its large size and geographic variety, the U.S. includes most climate types from the tropical atmosphere of Hawaii and Florida to the semi-arid Great Plains; from the arid Mojave Desert to the snow-capped Rocky Mountains, not to mention the cold Arctic climate of Alaska. Because of the climate, the ecology in the U.S. is extremely diverse, with abundant flora and fauna and amazing natural The U.S. is the largest economy in the world, and one of the most technologically advanced. The gross domestic product (GDP) in 2009 was roughly $14 trillion USD (U.S. dollar), with per capita GDP at $47,000 USD. American firms are at or near the forefront of technological advances, especially with Pilot Training and learn how to fly!

The United States has by far the largest aviation industry in the world. When you think about the number of successful global corporations based in the US (Corporate Jet Departments), the largest military and air force in the world - the USAF & US Navy, the largest economy in the world - including 5 of the 7 largest airlines in the world, and the recent Regional Jet explosion in the states, you can get an idea for how truly huge is this market. the USA?

The US has excellent Training Schools and Facilities. Also many UK Based Pilot Training Schools have set up schools in the USA for Europeans to be able to acquire the JAA Pilot Licences while training in the USA. Click on the following to research the Flight Schools:

Most US Pilots stay within their own massive US Pilot Market, but their Training and Licenses are so highly respected throughout the world, that many US Pilots have ventured away to fly abroad for companies including pilots flying for airlines such as Korean Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airlines Cargo, and more. As mentioned above - there are many schools now in the US that provide JAA Flight Training and JAA European Pilot Licences.

In many parts of the US the weather is perfect for Flight Training - with many sunny days for weeks on end. In some of the northern states, pilots in training can take advantage of the cooler seasons to get practicial experience flying in cloud in IMC conditions, sometimes even within Snow showers and icing conditions.

Training in the US is not only professional but also cost effective.

Flight Instructor Training - USA

A person who holds a flight instructor certificate (called a "certificated flight instructor" or CFI) is authorized to give training and endorsements required for and relating to:

  • a student, private, commercial or other pilot certificate;
  • the three hours of training with reference only to instruments in preparation for a private pilot certificate, note that this does not need to be a CFII.
  • an instrument rating, only if the CFI has an instrument instructor rating (CFII); This cannot be given by a "safety pilot". A safety pilot can only be used to help maintain instrument proficiency with an instrument-rated pilot by flying the required six instrument approaches-holding-intercepting and tracking courses, within the preceding six calendar months.
  • a flight instructor certificate is only given if the experience requirements have been met (detailed below);
  • a flight review, endorsement (previously called BFR) (currently referred to as flight review see 14 CFR part 61.56), or recency of experience requirement;
  • preparation for a practical test (typically three hours within the preceding 60 days in preparation for a certificate or rating); or
  • endorsement for a knowledge test (written examination)

Certain limitations are placed on the instruction a flight instructor may give. For example, flight instructors wishing to train applicants for a flight instructor certificate must have held their own flight instructor certificate for at least 24 months and must have given at least 200 hours of instruction (and approved by the local FSDO). Specific training programs have additional requirements or limitations.

Certified Flight Instructor

This course is designed to take commercial pilots through the professional flight instructor course with a job placement opportunity with our school. The ground training consists of classroom lectures, briefings and home study.

During this part of the course the student instructors will refresh and bring up to date their technical knowledge and be taught the principles of basic instruction and how to apply them at both the PPL and advanced CPL levels.

The student will practice the planning of ground lessons and present briefings and will learn to fly and tech from the right seat of the aircraft. Upon successful completion all eligible candidates will have the opportunity to interview for employment with our flight department as a flight instructor.

Course Requirements

  • Commercial pilot certificate.
  • 3rd class medical.
  • FIA/FOI practical test.
  • 15 hours of total flight that includes:
  • 15 hours of one on one single engine flight instruction from an FAA certified flight instructor
  • 40 hours of ground instruction from an FAA certified instructor.

Certified Instrument Instructor (CFII)

The Instrument Instructor as the name implies will allow you to teach instrument students. The CFI-I course is a short course especially if you are already a CFI. You will learn how to teach basic instrument flying, that is how to control the airplane solely by reference to the instruments.

You will understand what instruments are primary and which are secondary for the task you are doing. For the student, it is very much like starting to learn to fly all over again. You will learn to teach straight and level, turns, climbs, and descents, and flight at various airspeeds, just like lesson one and two in the private pilot syllabus.

Once you master these tasks, you go on to teaching navigation, instrument approaches and landings from the approach. Your flying skills are judged as well as your teaching skills, so our course will ensure proficiency in both areas.

Course Requirements

  • CFI Certificate.
  • 3rd class medical.
  • 15 hours of total flight that includes:
  • 15 hours of one on one single engine flight instruction from an FAA certified flight instructor
