Return to instructing after 20 years

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!

Return to instructing after 20 years

The Canadian ATPL incorporates the Multi Engine and Multi IFR ratings and has blanket type ratings for anything under 12,500 lbs MGTOW so he can teach basically everything.now.

Can anyone name even one substantive actual benefit to the over the top hoops you guys in Europe have to jump through ?
It keeps the pay decent if you teach Multi-IR

You may want to read the thread on the other side; What's happening at Booker?

The other side is an expression oft used here that always refers to the "other" forum which bears the name of a certain magazine. I already named the thread but I think naming the forum may be frowned upon here. My diplomacy skills are somewhat limiting.

I’m still mulling the options.
I calculate between 3500-5000 pounds to get it back, and that will take a lot of amortisation at £25 an hour.

Primarily I won’t be doing it for the cash but to stay in aviation. There’s the pressing matter of a job to pay the bills before hand though.

I’m thinking this season Is basically shot now, so if I did it, early 2021 to be ready for next summer .

There is some great instructional training information out there to assist you with getting back into basic flight instruction, flight briefings etc. The NZ CAA Flight Instructor Guide is one such resource...

https://www.aviation.govt.nz/licensi...tructor-guide/

Good luck...

Cheers.
