Congratulations! Or is it "Congradulatoins?" (I dunno, I was an Air Science grad!)

CFI-I is by far the most rewarding instruction you'll do because those are skills you'll use for the rest of your career. The same way you try to convince your student he's screwing up the procedure turn is about the same as it is convincing the captain that he's turning the wrong way in the hold!


Besides, I got my MEI but haven't done a "drag demo" in 7 years!!

Thanks alot, everyone!!

It didn't really hit home until the examiner, and all of the CFI's around the flight school started talking about "The responsibility involved with teaching...". But I can't wait to start actually giving some instruction!!

One of the reasons I decided to do the CFI-I initially was because I ALWAYS fly IFR....I've got tons of instrument time, and I feel the most comfortable when flying IFR. Lot's of CFI's limit themselves to VFR flying, because they feel the most comfortable doing it. Although I plan on adding my CFI here very soon, I think I'd like to specialize in instrument instruction (don't get me wrong...I'm not kicking a student out of bed because she want......oh, my bad....).l ANYHOO....

HEy, MikeD...I have actually considered it....talked to the OSO and everything....then I went and talked to the Army Warrant Officer Guys....they'd both be cool, but I just don't know if I have the motivations anymore!!!!

I do miss those dress blues, though....

Yeah, CFI-I work is good times.....

I love my private and commercial students, and I've got much better stick and rudder skills because of that instruction, but it's physically more demanding work than doing instrument instruction.

Enjoy your CFI-I time, it's rewarding and relaxing!!
