Flight Instructor Program

Becoming a Certified Flight Instructor is a great option for pilots looking to gain valuable experience. Flight Instructors not only prepare students of all levels for their pilot certificates, but also conduct flight reviews, proficiency checks, and ground training sessions.

Flight Instructor initial examiner fee is approximately $1200. Fundamentals of Instruction (FOI) exam is also required for flight instructor initial rating and is approximately $150. This must be passed in addition to the Flight Instructor Airplane (FIA) written exam. Both the FOI and FIA are required to be completed prior to entering into instructor initial training program and the FIA prior to instructor add on training program. FOI and FIA test prep are not included in CFI, CFII, MEI training programs, however may be added.

Get with an instructor and they can estimate the costs with you!

Instrument Pilot Program

Scottsdale Executive’s instrument program will take any pilot to a level of safety and proficiency greater than that achieved through the private pilot program. Obtaining an instrument rating will make for a better pilot, reduce insurance premiums and is more marketable, as many aviation employers require their pilots to be instrument rated.

A minimum of 40 flight hours under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) are required by the FAA. Most students take advantage of the opportunity to obtain an instrument rating while building time towards their Commercial Pilot License. This rating also requires a FAA Third Class Medical as well as an instrument pilot airplane knowledge and practical exam.

DISCOVERY FLIGHTS

The best introduction to your pilot training is to take a Discovery Flight

On your discovery flight, you’ll get the chance to get your hands on the controls! Your instructor will guide you through the required pre-flight inspection and prepare the aircraft for flight. Then, with the help of an instructor you will get to fly the aircraft.
