I guys, I'm looking for a realistic figure on how much I need to finish Instrument - CFII

Here's my breakdown:

SEL - 213
HOOD - 69.9
XC- 89
SOLO - 18.5
NIGHT - 17.7
PIC - 45.4

I know alot of hours, it's a long story I don't want to remember :(

Anyway, I'm in a position now that I have enough money to finish.

I'm thinking maybe 30k??

And how long do you think it would take me??

thanks. Also I live in Hampton Roads VA if that helps..

Do you have a commercial? Best option is to get commercial single, and take CFI-A right AFTER. You will be fresh on commercial maneuvers. CFII as an add-on. expect 10K for CFI And CFII with both checkrides.
