I am curious as to how a CFI gets all of their hours in, and the actual length of time that takes. Speaking with some of the students at the Mesa location, the pay is not very great, and not very many hours are logged. (I think the CFI said he was full time and made less than 12K for one full year, if I remember properly) How exactly can a CFI get more hours is possible? Once you agree to be a CFI for ATP flight school, do you have any option to leave and perhaps instruct for another school? Does seniority play any role here?
Thank you for taking the time to read my questions, I apologize for any possible miscommunication.
