If you're going to spend the money anyway at least make it worthwhile. Like my old man says "if something is worth doing then do it right the first time."
So I guess you went through the Fast track program and you memorized the Book? YOU PEOPLE HAVE NO CLUE WHAT GOES ON AT ATP AND HOW THEY CONDUCT THEIR OPERATIONS..... I honestly think you should stop talking about it.
Ok spend your money stay in CFI school for a year "that'll be worthwhile I guess?" Or spend your money Stay in CFI school for a few weeks and boom you're out making money gaining hours....
You should know MOST
of the stuff you need to know before Entering CFI school Anyway. If you know your stuff from all your Other ratings it shouldn't take you a year to learn how to teach it to someone else anyways..... No school can prepare you for your First Private student that tries to kill you. You have to know your stuff from your training and be able to be safe with students..... Point is you learn with experience, you can't be taught exprience.
