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!

Thanks Dan.

I interview for one of the larger “mid sized” integrated schools.

I want ant to know that you understand the basics of aerodynamics and can explain them in simplistic terms whilst remaining true to fact. A good starting point is to review the questions in the back of Standards document 10. Typically i’ll ask a question and then pull the answer apart with further questions based on your answers.

I’ll give you a topic for a long briefing - straight and level for example - and play the less able student who doesn’t get what your selling.

Think of instances in your life that demonstrate your understanding of the characteristics of a good instructor.

If if we get through all of that you may get a lesson in the sim to give back.

Thats just me - others have different techniques, styles or programmes.

I have had a couple of interviews lately which I believe went well, generally how long do you have to wait before you get an offer or a start date?
