Default CFI's Help Needed!

CFI's - Airline Pilot Central needs your help with the knowldegebase project.

Specifically, we need CFI's to write short knowldgebase articles (2 paragraphs or so) on flight training related topics. Take a look in the Knowldgebase Helper Forum for examples of other articles in the works.

Topic Starters:

  • PPL certification requirements
  • CPL certification requirements
  • CFI certification requirements
  • What should I look for when selecting a FBO flight school?
  • What should I look for when selecting a UNIVERSITY flight program?
  • What to look for in a fleet of training aircraft.

ANYTHING you feel that students or prospective students would like to know about or FAQ's. The Knowledgebase project will be published as a site upgrade in the near future. Thanks for giving back to the FREE pilot resource that is Airline Pilot Central.


************************************************** *****

Also in a separate project, for CFI's that enjoy writing, we are looking for CFI(s) to contribute short articles on a monthly basis to be published on the main site. The articles would include a bio and a link to your school/FBO and might be a good way to advertise your services. (Did I mention we get over 25,000 unique IP visits per day and hundreds of flight training related questions per week? Grow your client-base and help us at the same time!).

One question, would it be ok if these are longer than two paragraphs? I'd love to do some of this after I get my exam done and have a little more free time but I think it's impossible to address the last three in anything less than a page.

Of course it can be longer! I was trying to avoid a "one liner" explanation of a given topic.

Thanks for your interest and let us know how we can support you.

Another question, would these articles remain the property of the author and could I submit them to periodicals and whatnot?

While in highschool I contributed to a cycling magazine that was published by the shop I worked at. It was something I enjoyed doing but during college lost the free time needed to do such work. This is something I've wanted to pick back up since then and see it as an opportuninty to be a better instructor (good ones are always learning) and potentially give my income a little boost.
