Train with us at Waterford Aero Club to become a Flight Instructor – one of the most rewarding and enjoyable career paths in aviation.
For pilots wishing to give ab-initio instruction, they must have an FI certificate. After completing a course of training and passing the assessment of competence with an EASA FIE (Flight Instructor Examiner), the IAA will issue an FI(A) certificate with privileges restricted in accordance with FCL.910.FI.
This restriction remains in force until the FI(A) has completed the FCL.910.FI requirements to have it removed. Once complete the instructor shall apply to the IAA to have the restriction removed.
