Certified Flight Instructor-Instrument (CFII) Course

The Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII) Course is required if you wish to teach students how to navigate solely with flight instruments. While not required for employment as a flight instructor, having a CFII makes you highly marketable as a job candidate.

  • Must have completed the Instrument Course
  • Must hold at least a current third class medical certificate

Eligibility Requirements

* Hours are based on Part 141 FAA minimums, not average completion times. Prices for books & supplies, the knowledge test, the FAA’s practical test and your medical certificate may vary.   

For pilots with previous helicopter experience, Part 61 is a option with a tailored curriculum based on your needs. Please call for additional details and pricing.
