The Certified Flight Instructor is the cornerstone of aviation. A flight instructor has the responsibility to train the next generation of aviators to the highest standard of safety and competency. At CHI, it is our job to make sure the next generation of pilots exceed those standards. If you plan on moving on to the airlines, flight instruction is a great way to gain hours to meet the Airline Transport Pilot minimums.

Becoming a flight instructor is a monumental step in your aviation career. Whether you become a CFI to gain hours, or as an end goal, you will have the most important job in the aviation
community; to mold people into safe pilots. Here at CHI, we have the technology and expertise to teach you just how to do that. Our own flight instructors are prepared with the experience, knowledge, and top of the line airplanes to prepare you to make an impact on the future of aviators.
