CFI Glider to Sport Pilot CFI


Well-Known Member

So I have done quite a bit of research on this topic and I am getting two different answers and having difficulty finding the FAA answer in the FAR's. To give you some background, I am a CFI Glider with 250 hours total time. I have my SEL private with 40 PIC. I am looking to adding a sport pilot CFI to my initial CFI Glider (I was offered a job if I get the Sport CFI so why not). My question is can I add on a Sport pilot CFI simply through what the FAA calls a proficiency check if I have 10 hours in LSA aircraft or do I need 15 hours LSA and 100 PIC in SEL? I believe the second applies to me because I already have a CFI initial in the eyes of the FAA and the second applies to those going for their initial CFI Sport. Thank you!
your local FSDO phone number could help you answer that as well as help you introduce yourself
