I'm not saying you can't be a good instructor if you are in it mostly for building time. I don't blame people for not wanting to do it for a career either. I just think that there are many people out there that just go through the motions, and by doing so are doing flight instruction an injustice.

I definately agree with you. I have seen that first hand and it's not fair for students to not get quality instruction.

thanks for all of your help guys....wow 8 replies in under 30 min...gotta love that!!
I would say that if want to be a career pilot (and have the time and money), go ahead and get it...it will be a good refresher on regs and theory. It is not critical, but is a good resume addition.

However if you do decide to enter the active instructor pool be conscientious about the job you do. Also, as a 3000 hour guy you would have instructing opportunities that low-time cfi's do not, due to credibility and/or insurance.
