A Flight Instructor Rating issued under Part 61 permits the holder to conduct flight training in an aircraft. To obtain a flight Instructor Rating, you must hold a Private Pilot Licence, Commercial Pilot Licence or Air Transport Pilot Licence. To be eligible to hold a Grade 3 Training Endorsement with Instructor Rating, you need a minimum of a Commercial Pilot Licence.
The course includes 33 hours of ground theory (including a 12 hour PMI course), 36 hours of aeronautical training, a theory exam and flight test. It will take approximately 4-5 weeks (subject to weather conditions and individual progress) from Monday to Friday each week (full days).
If you do not already hold a Spinning Endorsement, this can be completed at the Pilot Academy at an additional charge.
