Instructor Internship Program

Develop your skills as a professional pilot and build time as a flight instructor.

The Instructor Internship Program (IIP) allows a qualified international student to develop the skills of a professional pilot by training to become a flight/ground instructor and act as an intern (paid or unpaid) performing the duties of a flight and ground instructor.

 

The standard IIP is a 900 clock hour program, and consists of 110 hours of flight training. The flight training consists of an FAA flight review (to validate the Private Pilot Certificate based on a foreign license), an instrument rating, a commercial single-engine pilot certificate, a certified flight instructor-airplane certificate, and the certified flight instructor-instrument rating.

 

The remaining approximately 800 clock hours consist of class room/ground school theory, briefings (pre/post, expanded, etc.), testing, workshops, study sessions, lectures, tutoring, teaching practicums, etc.

 

The flight training consists of an FAA flight review, an instrument rating, a commercial pilot certificate, a certified flight instructor-airplane certificate, and the certified flight instructor-instrument rating. 

 

Upon successful completion of the training portion of the program, the student will be evaluated to determine eligibility for the internship portion of the program. This eligibility is based, but not limited to, how the student performs during the training and the level of success the individual achieved.

 

Below is a break-down of the approximate hours of training that you will undergo for each phase of training. Individual experiences will vary. All students must meet the minimum standards of the appropriate FAA practical test standards (PTS) to be eligible to take the FAA practical test of each phase.
