A Flight Instructor Rating (FIR) with the North Queensland Aero Club allows you to join the ranks of instructor and teach others how to fly.
This endorsement opens up new and varied career pathways for the Commercial Pilot. You can enjoy a rewarding career as an instructor, become an examiner or build hours and experience to further your career. Instructors are often recruited into larger operations, going on to become Check and Training Captains in large organisations and airlines.
You will undertake dual flight training with a qualified instructor both receiving and delivering flying lessons. You will also receive and present many theory briefings. There is one formal theory examination, the PIRC exam to complete, studied at your own pace.
Once you meet all the requirements and have completed a Pre-Licence flight with our CFI you will be referred to an external examiner for your FIR flight test to become a Grade 3 Instructor.
