Flight Instructor Pilot

The opportunity to learn, teach and discover new heights!

"One of the biggest mistakes a recent graduate Commercial Pilot makes is not to continue training..."

Graduating as a Commercial Pilot is not an easy task, especially for a relatively young person, he must go through many obstacles and challenges. But, at the same time while he is progressing towards Instrument and Twin-Engine certifications, and finally gets his or hers Commercial Pilot Certification, they are completely exhausted, and somewhat discouraged with the wrong idea that now immediately will get a flying job.

Although, they already have a Commercial Pilot’s License with approximately 250 flight hours. The biggest problem is that they have the title (License and Certifications) but, they do not have the flight experience.

Therefore, they would need to build additional flight hours and continue their training as Pilot.

The minimum requirements that most of the airlines in the world ask in a job interview, is how much flight experience you have and/or at least, familiarization of the model and type of aircraft that they currently operate, which in most cases are complex Jet airplanes. Based on supply and demand, some of the airlines with the exception of some international carriers ask for at least two years of college, ATP (Airline Transport Pilot) license, and fluency in English.

The Best Choice

SimPilot strongly recommends, that upon completion of your Commercial Pilot License certification, you take a short break and immediately after, preparing to obtain your Flight Instructor Pilot License.


Must be at least 18 years of age.

  • Read, speak, and understand English.
  • Hold a commercial or ATP certificate.
  • Hold at least a current third-class FAA medical certificate.
  • Achieve a score of 70% or better on the Flight Instructor Knowledge exams. There are two initial exams that you must take: The FOI (Fundamentals of Instruction) and the Flight Instructor Knowledge Exam.
  • Accumulate the minimum flight hours according to the regulations.
  • Perform the oral and practical exam for Flight Instructor Certificate.

To obtain a Flight Instructor Pilot Certificate, is NOT as difficult as many people think, and neither is expensive. What you need to do however, is to study a little more; design your own “Lesson Plans”, etc. and become accustomed of flying the airplane from the right seat, since this is where usually the flight instructor sits and instructs.

The advantages of a quick transition from your commercial pilot license to a Flight Instructor license, is that you have all the knowledge and practice fresh in your mind, which will allow you to pass the new certifications quickly and easily. Basically, the study material and maneuvering procedures are the same.

SimPilot will give you additional guidance to become a good Flight Instructor. The benefits of being a Flight Instructor are enormous. It is a fast way to accumulate flight hours, keep yourself in constant training, expand your career options and in addition you receive monetary compensation while gaining experience in preparation for your ATP certification.

Monitoring your Flight Proficiency (MFP)

Unfortunately, there is an abundance of evidence showing an inadequate lack of skills proficiency in today’s pilots.
Pilots are not exercising the same duties all the time and are hardly flying the same procedures, as for example IFR recurrency, it is a significant problem in the air transport industry. Simpilot monitors your flight proficiency progress by making available the use of FAA approved flight simulators. Any time that a particular endorsement check or recurrent proficiency deadline is approaching, our MFP program will begin to send you reminders by text and/or email to fulfill that requirement.

Job placement Program

Job Placement is a free service that Simpilot offers to its pilot members to find employment. Simpilot works with several large and small domestic, international airlines, and aviation companies, for whom they screen and place pilots for both temporary and permanent positions. This type of assistance usually includes a combination of career counseling and skills assessment, along with guidance on writing a resume, drafting a cover letter, and filling out a job application. After that step is completed, then we can help the pilots to find appropriate available positions and prepare them for their interviews.

Building Flight Time Assistance Program

Building flight time is important, especially if you are working towards a career as a professional pilot. There are few creative ideas that will help you build flight time hours: becoming a Flight Instructor, volunteering for a charitable cause or train for a new endorsement or rating, and becoming a member of the “Simpilot Flying Club”, which is an organization developed with aircraft owners in mind, who hardly ever fly their airplanes and are willing to rent them at a low cost, being this option the one that saves you more time and money. We created this program in response to the recent increase of the flight time experience requirements needed to obtain your airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate.

Promote and re-enforce safety.

To keep pilots safe while flying, “safety always comes first“.
Aviation welfare is especially important because there are lives involved in every operation of the aircraft. Safety must be the number one priority for every pilot in all aspects of their flight. We at
Simpilot, provide information on new safety risk control and corrective actions as well as the newly amended safety procedures. Through simulation, we promote a positive safety culture and encourage pilots to always maintain awareness of safety.

Personalize Guidance and Orientation
