Flight Instructors

Flight instructors are responsible for teaching students how to use approaches that include textbook education, simulators, and live flight training to fly in a variety of environments. Flight instructors use ground-school courses both to teach students the fundamentals of flying an aircraft and to help them prepare for the written exam they may expect to face from the Federal Aviation Administration ( FAA) when applying for their pilot licence.
