In order for a flight instructor to be able to teach instrument students, they must first obtain their Certified Flight Instructor, Instrument rating. This rating allows the instructor to be able to provide instruction of instrument flight.

– Must hold a CFI Certificate
– Must be at least 18 years old
– Must be able to read, speak, write, and understand English
– Must obtain at least a third-class FAA medical certificate

Orlando Flight School offers a self-paced CFI program, which entails a mixture of both ground school and flight training.


Step 1: Requirements
– Students must meet the requirements listed above in order to begin their CFI training.

Step 2: Ground Training
– The CFII rating requires a written test, and thus ground training will be accomplished in preparation for the test.

Step 3: Flight Training
– There are no specific hour requirements mandated by the FAA for the CFII rating, so flight
training will be accomplished until student proficiency is reached.

Step 4: FAA Practical Test
– The FAA practical test, or checkride, will be the final test necessary for each student to obtain their instrument rating. This test consists of an oral test portion, which will test the knowledge of the student, as well as a flight test, which will test the flying ability of the student. After the student passes this test, they will be issued their CFII rating.
