Certified Flight Instructor Training Florida
Advance in your career as an aviator by pursuing certified flight instructor training at Paragon Flight in Florida. Not only will you be able to make a living doing what you love, but you will also log hours that will help you qualify for more advanced employment opportunities.
Becoming a Certified Flight Instructor
The top jobs in any career require two things: education and experience. Enter the role of Certified Flight Instructor. With a Commercial Pilot License, you’ll have the education, but you’ll need to accumulate experience.
This entry into the aviation profession helps you hone your expertise, log hours, and make a living. Because you’ll need a minimum of 1,500 logged hours even to apply for an airline position, this opportunity to log time while making money can benefit your career.
While earning a Flight Instructor Certification is no cakewalk, the rewards are worth it, especially if you plan to keep climbing the ladder of professional aviation.
Start with these initial prequalifications:
- Minimum of 250 documented flight hours (Part 141 – 190 hours)
- Have a Commercial Pilot Certificate
- Have an Instrument Rating
- Hold a minimum of a 3rd Class Medical Certificate
Paragon Flight is a single source institution for all of the required credentials and training for each type of training for certified flight instruction, including CFI (single-engine), CFII (instrument rating), and CFMEI (multi-engine).
By the end of your custom course, you will be prepared to pass the written exam and the FAA administered checkride with its verbal and practical components.
