Tuesday, July 11, 2017 Dinner Meeting and Program -- "Increasing Flight Safety by Becoming a CFI"
Written by Bette Gardner   
Tuesday, 20 June 2017
--Approved by FAASafety for WINGS credit--

If you have wondered about the training, the time and financial commitment to become a flight instructor, then join Mike Shiflett from CFI Bootcamp for a presentation on becoming a CFI.

Gaining your flight instructor certificate Is an opportunity to become part of a group of aviation leaders that are responsible for ensuring flight safety in everything we do. Instructors solo student pilots, recommend pilots for practical tests, provide training and endorsements to fly high performance, complex, tailwheel airplanes and much more.

Becoming a flight instructor is seen by many as the ultimate achievement in aviation knowledge. You learn the material so well because you have to teach it. This improves your own knowledge and, of course, your own flight safety.

Mike will also provide some educational and entertaining checkride stories from the 11 years he was a Designated Pilot Examiner in the San Jose FSDO.
