Flight Instructor Course (FIC)
The FIC will teach you how to teach the future pilots of the world.
The course is available to anyone, regardless of age and experience. As long as you are interested in passing the knowledge that you have to others, this course is for you. It is truly enjoyable and rewarding to see other pilots grow their skills under your guidance.
During the FIC training, you will gain a skill set that very few pilots are privileged to have. You will learn how to convey your knowledge and experience in a way that is engaging, so the students can learn and retain that knowledge in order to be safe and confident pilot. That skill set is what differentiates a flight instructor from any other professional pilot.
The course is conducted by an experienced MEIR and CPL instructor who is also an airline pilot.
