Default Accelerated CFI

CFI Bootcamp. They have a great program Mike the owner is the master! Please note that you need to put forth The effort and follow their program and continue to learn;aviation is a life long learning career. Online Flight Instructor Course California | CFI Training USA. I am a 20 plus year CFII and I was super impressed with the program. It is a lot of work but worth it. I took the ground school as a review when The ACS came about. Definitely recommend in person as the teaching skills learned are spot on.

American Flyers has a 30 day CFI (includes CFII) academy in Ft Lauderdale. I wanted to do it (Im military, used to drinking from a fire hose) but getting that time off work will be difficult. Might be going to Orient in Homestead.

Just an update. Completed my ASEL Instrument Commercial this past week. I followed this model:

1. Study for the written via King Schools and other written material for about 3 months. (Also, had to wait until 8/28/18 so that I could do COM check ride in 172. I have the 10+ training hours in TAA) and 10 plus in Mooney.

2. Booked a full week of accelerated flight training in AZ. 2 weeks before I head out here I go for 3 flights with a CFI to get used to flying a 172 again and working on basics, spot landings, maneuvers.

3. Take written the day before my flight to AZ and pass easily.

4. Get to AZ and on Sunday start working on flight training. Me and instructor had a pre-arranged plan and we implement it upon arrival. Every day adjusting for flying and ground work.

5. Took my check ride on Friday and passed. I was prepared for oral and flew the ride very well.

I feel that pre-prep and studying and a clear plan during the week made it possible.

It's my opinion that I could do the same for the CFI!
