Default Seattle Area CFI Jobs

Hello all,

I recently completed my CFI and will be moving to the Seattle area within the next year. I am curious if anyone has first hand info on being a CFI in the Seattle/Tacoma area?

Specifically, Iím looking for info on QOL, best schools to look at, and pay as a full time or part time CFI.

Thanks.

Gig Harbor. I was looking at the Tacoma Narrows Airport. Or is it worth it to make the commute to Boeing Field?

TIW averages 146 aircraft movements a day during the hours of tower operation. KBFI averages 504. Last time I was in to KTIW it had a couple of FBOs but unless you were a CFI with the ATP branch there it really didn’t look like anyone was seeing a lot of student flying.

If you can live up around PAE the guys at Regal (among others) seem to get a lot more hours. But don’t plan on living in Gig Harbor and working at Paine. I can think of no worse commute in the nation.

PAVCO is a solid school with a decent bit of business. Otherwise, I personally would try to get to Rainier Flight Service At KRNT. Last summer they had like a 200 person waitlist. Great planes, great people, and great airport!
