Accelerated Sport CFI Training

Postby mhaleem » Thu Jan 31, 2013 10:55 am

Anyone know of any accelerated sport cfi courses. I am a full time public school math teacher and need a concentrated accelerated course. I have completed all the written tests, and have taught private pilot ground schools in the recent past. Lesson plans are all complete as they are very similar to the lesson plans I use in teaching middle/high school math. I possess a private/instrument rating with more than 150 hours, and need 15 hours PIC LSA, spin endorsement, etc. Thanks

You can certainly come up here (KLHV) and fly off your 15 hours pretty quickly (as soon as the weather improves). If you don't have much LSA experience, I'd start you off with my three-day transition course (see http://avsport.org/about/downsize.htm), which would double as your required CFI dual instruction. I'll then be happy to give you a practice CFI checkride and signoff, but the spin training will be a problem, since my LSA (like most of them) is placarded against anything other than straight and level. We'd probably have to get you your spin training in a certified aircraft, not an LSA.

Paul -- hypothetically speaking :D

Lets say a PP-ASEL with an Instrument rating (but not current) showed up on your doorstep with around 400 hrs in an LSA, had passed both written tests, had recent spin training and teaches professional seminars in his area of expertise a couple times a year. Provided this old dog could be taught new tricks, what would it take time-wise to fully prep for a successful CFI-S check ride?

Dave, I think I could have you ready in a week (hypothetically speaking, of course!) :wink:
