Your situation is not different from someone who gets his MEI as his first instructor license, then the CFII and never adds the single-engine CFI.


This is the frustration...the loose terms. I have a CFI which is my certificated flight instructor certificate. Even on the FAA pilot registry i show ATP and CFI. My ratings on my CFI are instrument airplane and airplane multiengine. No, I canít instruct on single engine unless I get a single engine add on. You donít get additional flight instructor certificates though......a CFI is a CFI. CFI does not mean single engine to the FAA.

The burning question is what FedEx calls it and what they want us mil comp dudes to answer. Hoping a FedEx guy/gal might be able to chime in. Like Mox Nix alluded to itís not a contest- Most of us donít instruct on the civilian side anyway. But we canít lie on the app and just ignore our instructor ďstuffĒ. I wish they had their definitions on the application.

Yep, I agree. The semantics of what you traditionally think of when you say someone "is a CFI". In that sense, no, I was never "a CFI" teaching in light piston singles for people working on their private certificate.

I have been advised from a couple of sources to check the CFI box, for the specific reason that I have a flight instructor certificate... that it wouldn't make sense "to the computer" to have CFII and MEI without also having a CFI qualification (certificate). Would I get filtered out because of this seeming incongruity?

But my application is not currently published, and I'm still waiting to hear from someone on the inside, somebody "in the know", as to how it really should be, according to how their computer algorithm filters are set.

Ok, thanks Nix- good to know. I will reach out to the bros I know there and advise what I find. Not sure if any of them did the mil comp (which is why I posted here) before they went to greener pastures but will try.

I am trying to publish an app soon, too- unfortunately, itís become obvious there isnít a quick/solid answer on this one on the interwebs so far

I gather that if you are a civilian instructor, you are a CFI. If you have your civilian instrument rating, you are a CFII. If you also have your civilian multi-engine rating, you are an MEI.

I'm a milcomp guy also, and I put those on my app as described. I think it's pretty easy to explain and justify it, but I'm not sure that it will even come up as they will look up your airman certificates and get copies before the interview anyway.

What's the deal with the employment history? I mark "currently employed and it still forces me to put an end date. So do I have to go in every day and change that? Also I received a new position with the company and am trying to add that as well since it's a paid position but I'm required to do the same thing, plus it puts that new spot down at the bottom of the history of employment.

I miss the old PC. 😭

I completed mine shortly after the changeover. Yesterday my app was there and I updated it. Today it is only 1/4 complete. I am not screwing with it. It will probably show up again tomorrow or the next day...

Update monthly. That should be good enough.

Default Military sortie conversion

I know on the old pilot credential application it added .2 per military sortie. The new application site does not state that. Does anyone know if itís still computed? I only ask because I want my hours on my resume to match my application.

Default Emails from FedEx Pilot Recruit./Pilot Hiring

I submitted my application via the new application website in late JAN / early FEB. I've been updating it approximately two-three times a week and have not heard back or received any email(s) until two days ago. It's possible this was just a glitch with the new website, but the day before I received two emails, I updated my application and noticed that a couple of fields of my personal info were missing (items I had previously completed). The day after I updated/saved my application I received two emails; one from [email protected] titled "FedEx application process" and the other from [email protected] titled "Invitation to apply."

In summary, they tell me to update my profile, review it to make sure everything is accurate and up-to-date, then submit the application with the caveat that once submitted I am submitting a formal application that cannot be changed. In the email titled "Invitation to apply" it mentions that the link to submit my application is specific to my application and expires within thirty days.

My question is, after two months of having completed and submitted my application and not hearing anything, does this mean the system has just received my application? Has anyone had a similar experience and/or received the same emails? Is this a standard "form letter" or does it mean my application has been noticed and passed through the first "filter"?

Thanks in advance.
