Flying Instructor Rating Renewal

The FI Rating is valid for 3 years. Renewal is done by completing two of the following three options:

  • Complete a flying test with an examiner in the last twelve months of licence validity period.
  • Complete 100 instructional flying hours, 30 in the last 12 months of licence validity.
  • Attend approved Seminar within the last twelve months of licence validity.

The flying test with an examiner, will involve a pre flight briefing on a subject of his choice, followed by approximately 1 hours flying assessment of your instructional capabilities in general handling skills such as stalling, steep turns, and spinning. After the flight will be a long briefing on a PPL subject.
