Wait till you do your CFII. Now THAT is tough. (unless of course your school is the wing-it type, pun intended   )

But congrats either way.

Well actually from what I've heard your intial CFI is the most difficult as that is taken at the FSDO with actual Feds. Your CFII you can take with a DE, and its mostly just instrument all over again. I've already taken the FOI (Fundamentals of Instruction) and FIA (Fundamentals of Instruction Airlplane) along with the AGI (Advanced Ground Instructor) and IGI (Instrument Ground Instructor) tests so I've already got the written part out of the way. But to each thier own.

Ah, I see. That's different from my school (141). At my school you did CFI/CFII simultaneously. That was REALLY tough at times.

Wow that would be TOUGH, I can only imagine.

Thats exactly right, that was my rationale for getting them done together, that and thier is obviously some overlap between them.

Congratulations! Enjoy your flying!
I only wish that flying lessons/school would be as reasonably priced in Europe as they are in the US!



There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

They are, and it's basically the same case wroldwide. All because of heavy taxation and user fees.

So in reality none of us US pilots should be complaining one bit.  ziplip
