Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

Convert CFI, CFII and MEI to European equivalent?

Just as the title says, is it possible to convert FAA CFI, CFII and MEI to the European equivalent or a complete instructor rating course is required to work as flight instructor on SEP, MEP and in IFR conditions?

Yes it is possible, and it's easier than it used to be. In the UK you would now need to:

1) Obtain a minimum of a EASA PPL (CAP 804 Section 4 Part Q Subpart 1 Page 5 - gives the option of with/without IR);

2) Add the ratings for which you wish to instruct, such as MEP;

3) Complete CPL Theoretical Knowledge;

4) Complete FI training as assessed at an Approved Training Organisation which runs Instructor Courses; no specific duration of flight/ground training;

5) Complete FI Assessment(s) of Competence.

See CAP 804 Section 4 Part Q Subpart 2 Page 1. This is better than it used to be, where a minimum amount of training was specified under JAR-FCL. Similar, in fact, to going EASA >> FAA except the FAA require a minimum amount of training prior to test where EASA doesn't.

That's great! I'm interested in a F-1 visa program where I will obtain, besides Frozen EASA ATPL, CFI, CFII and MEI. Thanks!
