Flight Instructor Course

About The Course 

The Flight Instructor Certificate allows the holder to give flight instruction to students for the PPL(A). Once qualified the privileges can be extended to different courses as required. At Booker Aviation we have a team of dedicated FIC Instructors to offer you top quality training.

The Flight Instructor Course is frequently cited by students as the most enjoyable course they complete during their commercial flight training. Many students elect to undertake this course prior to the multi-engine or IR courses in order to gain more experience and confidence. At Booker Aviation we will also offer help and assistance in seeking that 1st instructional position.
