I don't know how long it's been since you last instructed at SD but presumably those were the the good old days. Take SDFTI for example - things are very quiet there, which means a student gets a lot of attention, but the instructors are finding it a bit hard to build hours quickly.

hey reverse.. well last i instructed was in oct'07... but heard from few guys around that some schools are still employing but on the pretext of cfi's doing further courses as in mei or cfii or other things... n get paid the other way.. lol.. dunno how true though !!
truely i am not keen on piling on hrs n look for a commercial job want to instruct in general...
