Aspiring Flight Instructor Required

Postby Aeropower Flight Training » Tue Jul 26 2022, 04:13

Aeropower is looking to take on an aspiring flight instructor at our flight school in Bankstown, NSW.

We're seeking a switched on, motivated pilot that wants to point their flying career in the direction of flight instructing.
You'll be required to teach CPL theory and work with the students in the school whilst we conduct your instructor rating training.
Bonding arrangements with return of service obligations are available for those interested who meet the requirements.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who has wanted to become an instructor but has never thought it was within reach financially.

***This is a job, we will pay you to get your instructor rating!****

MIN Reqirements:

250 hours total time in Helicopters
100 hours PIC in helicopters
a good grasp of the CPL(H) ground theory material

Desirable:

Previous teaching experience

Please email:~ h o o @ aero power . com .au

Will you give this aspiring instructor some real world flying experience so they actually have something to offer students once they have the rating?

Will you take applications for pilots with less hours? I Passed all theory exams with an average of 84% and currently at 125hrs - building them slowly through flying private scenics. One of the many trying to get a start I have no doubt, but instructing has always been the long term goal.

So if you indeed have a licence was the person that taught you met a meteorologist? Or Aerodynamics an aerodynamicist? I could go on but I think the point was made.

How times have changed. 30 years ago the instructors had actual real world flying. Most were ex Vietnam and Mustering pilots that had thousands of hours and had experienced some not so good situations and survived to be able to pass that knowledge onto someone else.

The “Grade 3” rating was the beginning of the end of Instructing being a viable option, rather than a stepping stone. (Like it has been for some time in FW)

Why all the fuss? It’s a good opportunity for someone.

I find a lot to do with instruction is personally, professionalism, and attitude. Experience obviously helps but isn’t the only factor. I’ve had instruction from experienced guys who aren’t interested anymore more and they were terrible instructors. For a new pilot learning basic handling and ab initio. If young or new instructors have there head in the right place and are mentored correctly I personally think it’s not a bad thing.
