Ground Instructor Training


As a Certified Flight Instructor, or CFI, you will be responsible for helping people realize their dream of flight. This is one of the most rewarding forms of flying you will engage in, both for yourself and countless others. In the process you will acquire skills that will serve you well in your future aviation endeavors.



Steps to Success

There are several tests required to become a flight or ground instructor, including the Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) knowledge test, and a test specific to the type of instructor certificate you are seeking. This includes Flight Instructor Airplane (FIA), Sport Pilot Flight Instructor (SIA), Basic Ground Instructor (BGI), Advanced Ground Instructor (AGI), or Instrument Ground Instructor (IGI). More information about the knowledge tests is available in step 2 below. A practical test is required for a flight instructor certificate, but not for ground instructors.

Fundamentals of Instructing

For all flight or ground instructor certificates, you must pass the Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) knowledge test. This test must only be passed once. It is not required if you are already a CFI or want to upgrade an existing ground instructor certificate. You may also skip the FOI test if you hold a teacher’s certificate issued by a state, county, city, or municipality that authorizes you to teach at a 7th grade educational level or higher or are employed as a teacher at an accredited college or university.
