Instructor rating in Ireland

Post by Mike C » Sun Mar 09, 2008 10:56 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone know who in Ireland is offering full or part-time Instructor rating training? I have checked the 3 largest schools and none of them do the training anymore.

Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Many thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike

Both PTC and AtlanticAir in Cork are both offering instructor ratings, know somebody who recently finished in Weston also .... I went for AtlanticAir, arranged to start in June - if it ever stops raining !!!!

Best cheer Neil

The NFC just were just finishing an Instructors course last time I was there. They do them regularly not least to simply replenish their Instructor corps.

Last year one FTO put up a sign asking for 7k including full time ground school and flying. But 30 hours multiplied by the current rate will give you an estimate of current flying costs.

Ground school is 125 hours classroom work. Which covers the syllabus laid down by the JAA. That will take about three weeks full time.

Also a pre entry test is required. You need a high standard of flying to get through the course and pass the test.

The flight test involves you delivering a long briefing on a topic chosen by the examiner and then a flight where the examiner pretends to be a student.

Hi there
I have ambitions to do the rating so if anyone has done it recently, with any of the FTOs, I'd like to see a blog or a run-through of the course and exams and flight test.
