Professional pilot training
Flight Instructor Course FI(A)
We will organize an intensive flight instructor course for future aviation instruction professionals. After the course, you will have the skills, knowledge, and a professional attitude towards flight instruction: you can train recreational or professional student pilots. We offer you highly experienced instructors, the latest DA40NG aircraft and an international training environment. During the course, you will practice teamwork skills, presentations, operational and instructional methods that individual courses can not provide. The course also acts as a great reference when Patria will consider future flight instructor recruitments. The flight instructor rating is a great investment in the future and will increase potential employment options for professional pilots and will give you a new perspective to observe the environment regardless of the task.
We offer you highly experienced instructors, the latest DA40NG aircraft and an international training environment.
