I’m a Commercial Flight Instructor!
After 6 cancelations due to weather we finally got this done! As of 1/26/2016 I became a CFI. 🙂 I had the room blocked out and scheduled for an oral that generally runs for 4-6 hours or so. We knocked it out in just under 3. Being prepared helped with this.
The flight portion is generally around 2 hours. Ours was completed in about 1.5 hours. I found it to be a lot of fun.
Having everything laid out prior to the Examiner arriving is key (in this case he was from the Reno FSDO)
Knowing your flight plan inside and out and teaching it was one of my assignments.
