This advanced course provides a study of the aeronautical skills and abilities required for the Flight Instructor--Airplane Certificate. As a higher-level course, it offers training beyond the scope of the lower-level alternative course. Students must choose whether to take the lower-level or upper-level version of this course. Advanced simulation training techniques, curriculum development and monitoring, as well as job shadowing and mentorship are integral parts of this course of study. The student must complete the appropriate flight lessons and pass the Federal Aviation Administration's Flight Instructor--Airplane Single Engine Practical Exam to satisfactorily complete the course. Flight training fees (in addition to the cost of tuition) are required and must be paid in advance of the course start date. Flight training fees for this course are based on 25 hours of flight training, which is the minimum number of flight hours allowed by the FAA for completion of the Flight Instructor-Airplane Certification. Any additional training required beyond the FAA minimum is the financial responsibility of the student.
For more information on applicable flight training fees, students should consult the Aerospace website at: www.polk.edu/aerospace.
