- You get to understand on a much deeper level what you have already learnt. This makes you a more professional pilot and more attractive to airlines and charter operators.
- You quickly accumulate flight hours towards the minimums that airlines require.
- You get to share your passion for flying with people who appreciate your teaching.
- Airlines have a prerequisite minimum number of flight hours. As a Flight Instructor you will quickly multiply your flight hours and build your professional skills. This is one of the proven ways to rack up those hours and make yourself attractive to potential employers.
