ADVANTAGES OF A FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR RATING
Becoming a Professional Flight Instructor will provide an opportunity for rewards beyond just employment. Many pilots will attest that the wealth of knowledge and skills acquired as a Flight Instructor will be a great asset to any aviation career. Airlines often hire pilots with flight instructor experience with the aim of advancing them into company training positions.
A flight instructor gets to share their passion for flying by teaching others how to fly. Any way you look at it, getting an instructor rating will increase your level of knowledge and reward you by introducing qualified, safe, and competent pilots to the ranks.
ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO GET FLIGHT EXPERIENCE
A typical flight instructor can build around 500 hours per year, sometimes much more. Employment in a flight instructor role for even a year can set you up for the rest of career. Additional exposure to how an air operator functions is highly valuable to other employers.
