If you are passionate for flying and love to share your passion, knowledge, and experience, then you might have what it takes to be a Flight Instructor.

Instructing is more than a skill; it is sharing the gift of flight with your students and being rewarded as they achieve their goals.

Course Pre-Requisites

Before you can hold an Instructor Rating, the following must be obtained:

 

  • Commercial Pilots Licence Aeroplanes (CPL)
  • Class 1 medical certificate
