Flight Instructor Certificate
The FI Certificate is valid for 3 years, and to revalidate a Flight Instructor Certificate, the applicant must complete two of the following requirements:
- Complete at least 50 hours of flight instruction on aeroplanes as FI, CRI, IRI or as Flight Examiner during the period of validity of the rating, 10 hours of this being instruction for the IR if privileges to instruct for the IR are to be revalidated.
- Attend a FI refresher seminar approved by the CAA within the validity period of the rating.
- Pass a FI(A) assessment of competence with an authorised Flight Instructor Examiner within the 12 months preceding the expiry of the certificate.
Our resident Flight Instructor Examiner (FIE) is available during training hours for revalidations and renewals of Flight Instructor and Class Rating Instructor Certificates, as well as Flight Examiner re-certification.
