Intake Zero Hr Pilot every month?


New Member
FSI have new class schedules every month. Any insiders can tell me how many "new" students walking into FSI every month (I mean with 0 fly hrs)?

I am also wondering if those "Intro to Crew Concept & Advanced IFR Operations", "Upset Recover", "Intro to Glass Cockpit", and "Multi Crew Co-op Training" courses are necessary to consider taking? Should I include some of these courses into my budget?

I have 0 fly time, and about to make my biggest decision to go across the ocean to learn fly. I am pretty sure FSI is the place I want to go (even I haven't tour any flight schools yet, but I've read all the posts about FSI and other schools, I just trust you all people and follow my instinct).

Thank you to all people, I've enjoy reading all post!

I have been an instructor at FSI for over two years, aside from the "Upset Recover" training I have never heard of any of these other courses.

The crew training is done for contract groups like Swiss Air/RWL/Asiana ect...."Intro to glass cockpit" may be something offered at a FlightSafety Center, which specializes in corporate/airline training. Different than the Academy. Students here do go through a CRM workshop (Crew resource managment) But it is only a 4 day class...
Hello Aviator,

I got those courses summary from a package information sent by Flight Safety Academy. The "Intro to Crew Concept and Advanced IFR Operations" is a 6 - 7 day course cost $1,700, the Intro to Glass Cockpit also, is a 6 - 7 day cours cost $3,300 train in the Sabb 2000 Level "D" equipment. Maybe you are right, these courses are offered at a different Flight Safety center.

Do I need to take these courses to make my C.V look better? Or just concentrate on working the log book hours?
Starting from 0 hours, you need to think about getting your ratings. Private, multi, instrument, commercial, CFI, ect....
Glass cockpit training in a level "D" sim is ways off. Call and talk to someone in marketing about your situation and I guarentee they won't try to sell you Saab 2000 sim time.
I would worry about getting the initial ratings first. Upset recovery (spin) training is included in the Commercial/Instrument/Multi-Engine Course. Some of the Multi-Crew training is required in Europe. I only know of 1 person who has taken that course and he was from France. The glass cockpit course is probably offered here since we have the Saab 2000 sim, but I would not think about taking that until after you have completed your CFI ratings.
