CFI (experied)

Postby axle » Wed Jan 02, 2013 1:05 am

It experied before the sport pilot rules became in effect. I'm going to retire next year and was wondering what would it take to become a CFI sport pilot (CFIS?) I might buy a trike (SLSA) and go that route. I don't have a WSC endorsement. So I get all caught up to speed and get current with a BFR and Medical, Then go and get a WSC endorsement.(two CFI endorsements) After I fly 50 hrs in a WSC then could I get a CFIS ?
Then that check ride would be with a DPE? And one can be a CFIS without a Medical? I don't have to make money at this, just don't want to sit around looking up at the sky, Got a commerical etc, what a waste not to use it...... Darn that was long... thanks you
