The Flight Instructor Syllabus is designed to meet or exceed Part 141 requirements for a flight instructor certification course and additional flight instructor rating courses. You may enroll in the three courses consecutively and become a fully qualified certified flight instructor (CFI), with instrument and multi-engine airplane instructor privileges, at the conclusion of the training programs. If you have already acquired a basic flight instructor certificate, you may obtain either or both of the additional instructor ratings. The Basic and Instrument Instructor Courses utilize single-engine land airplanes while the Multi-Engine Instructor Course employs multi-engine land airplanes with wing-mounted engines.
This syllabus provides a basic framework for your training. Ground and flight lessons are coordinated in a logical sequence to ensure your training progresses smoothly and that you are consistently introduced to topics on the ground prior to being required to apply that knowledge in the airplane. The compact spiral bound design makes it convenient to use on the ground or in the cockpit. Ideal for Part 141 pilot training and easily adapted for Part 61 training, the syllabus features lesson objectives, flight and ground time allocations for each lesson, coordination of academic support materials with pilot training, enrollment notices, and graduation certificates.
