Frequently Asked Questions
Q â€“ Why should I choose CFI C.A.R.E. for CFI training?
A â€“ CFI C.A.R.E. is dedicated to only training CFIâ€™s. Nothing else gets in our way. We are committed to your training as a CFI. We offer small classes (12 students maximum), the shortest possible training time, and you train with seasoned instructors and not multiple low time instructors who cannot sign you off for an initial check ride with the FAA. We have a plan for training that has resulted in incredible 95% pass rate for Initial CFI applicants and 98% for all
Add-On CFI applicants!
As you compare schools, here are some important question you should ask:
Will I have multiple instructors and if so, what are their qualifications?
Does each instructor meet the FAA minimum requirements for training or signing off an initial CFI applicant?
How many successful first time CFI applicants has each instructor signed
Q â€“ Can I flight train and take the check ride in my own aircraft?
A â€“ In most cases, yes. However your aircraft must meet all FAA requirements for training and the check ride. CFI C.A.R.E. will be glad to evaluate your airplane for free and make a recommendation.
Q â€“ Are there any prerequisites for enrolling in the course?
A â€“ No. However, all FAA Regulatory requirements for the rating must be met before you are eligible for a sign off to take the check ride for any rating. If you are seeking to complete training as quickly as possible, it would be best to have all of your knowledge tests and required ratings completed before beginning training, but it is not necessary for enrollment.
Q â€“ How is the training organized?
A â€“ The ground training is daily, Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Flight training is scheduled on an individual basis.
Q â€“ Is it possible to complete the ground training, flight training, and my check ride within 5 days for the initial CFI?
A â€“ No. There are just too many variables (weather, equipment, the FAA, personal, etc.) to be able to guarantee that you will complete the training and a check ride in any specific number of days.
Q â€“ Do you guarantee a sign-off or that I will pass the check ride?
A â€“ I do not guarantee a sign-off or that you will pass the test if you are signed off. However, those that are signed-off have had a 95% pass rate compared to the high failure rate of most other students trained elsewhere.
