BECOME A FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR
During the FI(H) course, not only do you learn how to teach, and expand your career opportunities, you also get to know yourself a lot better. As you learn how to transfer knowledge (i.e. teach), you discover your own strengths and weaknesses, and you learn what drives you, and which qualities inside of you have gotten you this far in life. That is phenomenal.
The flight instructor course consists of a theoretical part of 125 hours, and a practical part of 30 flying hours. The course is completed with an exam in which you teach a “student” an entire theoretical- and practical lesson.
Before starting the course, you need to be at least 18 years of age, and you need to meet a number of conditions.
If you already have your CPL(H) license, you can commence when you:
- Have a minimum of 220 hours of experience flying helicopters;
- Have a minimum of 100 hours of experience as a helicopter pilot in command (PIC).
If you have your PPL(H) license, you can commence when you:
