My biggest question is why ASA would suddenly re-initiate their hiring program with FSA and just as quickly shut it down. I'm sure they know how many people are in their hiring pool and they must be equally aware of the high qualifications of the many displaced pilots with applications in. Now, FSI is stuck holding out hope that the program will be re-revived.
The safest bet would be to complete the normal CFI program, wait in that pool for a year or two(Baronman) and instruct at the academy. Then, when you have enough hours, you can fly for ASA, ACA, CoN-AIR or whoever. As for the ASA instructor track, why would they even offer it when they have a big deep pool of CFIs just waiting for the call to come back and instruct? <---rhetorical question.
