i have right at 3000 hours and i am just wondering if forking over the money to get my CFI ratings is necessary when i really dont plan to use them other than "check a square".

any thoughts on this would be GREATLY appreciated and save me some money...ha.ha.

If I had 3000 hours I would bypass instructing. Nothing against it but the only reason I'm doing it is so I can go to the regionals quicker. If I could get around it I would.
