Route to becoming an FIC
Can anyone enlighten me on the route to becoming an FIC?
Standards doc 10 talks about "higher than average" levels of instructional ability and experience, then outlines training and assesment requirements
JAR FCL 1.330(f) says 500hrs Instruction and demonstrate ability to an FI(E)
... but what are the "real world" requirements? If I apply with 500hrs instructional experience am I likely to be accepted, or is the bar set higher in reality? Can I become an FIC independently, or do I need to be sponsored by an FTO?
Any real-world experience appreciated!
