Flight Instructor

There is no more important person in the aviation industry than the flight instructor. Everyone who pilots anything, from a balloon to the space shuttle, is the product of a flight instructor.

The Flight Instructor - Every pilot's gateway to an aviation career

 

Although a Flight Instructor  is normally thought of as someone who teaches a novice how to fly, always bear in mind that a flight instructor engages in advanced training as well. The Instructor  will instruct the student in three common areas: knowledge, skill, and judgment.

The flight instructor will develop a student’s understanding of traditional aviation academics, such as rules and regulations, aerodynamics, aircraft operations and performance, meteorology, navigation, etc. The flight instructor will also demonstrate flight procedures and cultivate individual piloting skills and a positive and committed attitude to safety.

 The Instructor is also the student’s mentor in handling the challenges of flight. It is through the experience of the instructor that the student pilot will initially gain insight and perspective that leads to good judgment and decision-making skills.

The pay scale is somewhere between $20 and $30 for each hour of instruction given. Unfortunately, on rainy days or when business is slow, there may not be any income, however the instructor role enables you to build experience and flying hours as you work towards advancement in your flying career.

Well qualified Instructors (Multi Engine, Instruments, Aerobatics etc) open opportunities to make a career of flight instruction.

Remember  that a new flight instructor will have acquired only about 300 hours of flight experience before joining the school staff. The new instructor should really view this time in his or her career as a paid apprenticeship. That fledgling instructor is given the opportunity to build and develop and is being paid something in the process.

 Throughout New Zealand there are more than 50 Part 141 Training Organisations that offer aviation programs. Career Instructors within the traditional academic environment enjoy more customary benefits and real opportunities for a stable and well rewarded career.

We offer an number of programmes for students wishing to pursue flight instruction as a career or career development opportunity.
