I was hoping someone could go into further depth on what sets apart the certifications to be a flight instructor once you graduate as a student.
Does a flight school like ATP help get its students their C.F.I.I & M.E.I as well? I was just looking at the timeline on ATP’s website and it says ‘Certified Flight Instructor’ by day 100 or 180 depending on whether someone starts from zero hours, or a private pilot’s license; i’m assuming this refers to ONLY the C.F.I, NOT the other two.
Does having the other two certifications help a Flight Instructor be able to take on MORE students as a means to build their 1,500 hours for the airlines FASTER than an Instructor that only has a standard C.F.I? How do you earn a C.F.I.I and a M.E.I? Do you have to have already been an airline pilot somewhere in order to get this kind of experience in order to train Instrument, and multi-engine flying?
