You'll need 200 hours of dual given, 500TT and a II, but I highly recommend Oxford in Goodyear, Arizona.

Heck, I'd be happy with a CFI job that flew the heck out of me and paid 30K a year. Oxford sounds great if I had the times.

TSTC needs instructors

Local flight school in Winona, MN needs flight instructors - they should be willing to do some line work as well - they also give you some free SIC King Air time if your willing to wash the plane after.... typically people leave for a job with 100 Hrs of KA time under their belt - the student load is slower, but should be picking up - obviously thats in most places tho.

Good year round weather, I might suggest Southern California. Get the -II and you will hardly ever have a day when you cant fly. I know there are several flight schools out there looking for instructors.

Came across this in Pheonix...

http://www.panamacademy.net/AboutUs/...t.aspx?jo_ID=5

Anyone know anything about working here? With a CFII & MEI, am currently working as a CFI at a small school in FL. I am considering applying at PA for an FI role, (money looks great, fleet looks modern) and was looking for first hand insight as to what it's *really* like to work and live there. The 'promises' of up to $55K/income seem pretty aggressive... and moving across country isn't trivial... Questions:
o Is the $55K/yr earnings realistic and achievable or is only 1 of 50 instructors ever gonna really make that much?
o What are *average* earnings for an FI w CFII and MEI?
o Can you really get 100 hours monthly?
o Are you paid as a W2 employee or a 1099 consultant (ie no bennies, on your own for taxes etc.)
o What is the caliber of student you are training?
o Are they financially connected in any way to the economically troubled Pan Am Airways that seems to come to life and die again every few years (they most recently had a few routes from Bedford MA and Portsmouth NH to FL but recently shutdown...)
o What else should I be aware of, that working there has taught you, or that you wished you knew before you took the job?

Thanks in advance, for inputs from current/former PA FI's.

Chinese students...or are they Korean? Regardless, those instructors have my respect....I'd go crazy after the day's first couple of flight hours.

oh, and it's "Phoenix."
