Default How to get funds for CFI training.

I am not sure anyone has made a posting about how to finish up or get the CFI training. I am wanting to get my CFI but I am having a hard time trying to save up or get the training done without the needed funds. Many people say to look up for grant or scholarship to get the training or get a loan out.

I am not sure where to look for grants or scholarships because I have gone to the AOPA website to see if there anything about helping pilots who want to get the CFI done and are needs of funds. Most scholarship I have seen say you need to be in school.

Thanks for any tips or help on helping me or other fellow pilots who are in the same boat as me who want to teach other people but don't have the funds to finish the training.

Did you hear about the Work Investment Act? WIA. Check this link out.

Every state is different, but basically they will fund your training or part of it.

Several flights schools in the country offer free CFI training in exchange for working it off over a certain amount of time. I'm not sure if these offerings only are available for add-ons though. It would most certainly mean that you would have to move...

Thanks for the info on it. Look like a good site to do research on it and see if there something on it.

I saw Hillsboro aero academy offers to train people for their CFII and MEI if they are hired on as a CFI. I would move in a heart beat but can't afford to do so and also I have family which would be harder to move.

I am looking around my area to see there a small flight school or someone in need of CFI that might be willing to either cover all or some of the training for CFI for a two year contract.

I'm pretty sure a small part 61 would do it signing for 2 years.

In this climate it certainly doesn't hurt to ask. Good luck!
