We have high standards for flight instructors that join our team, and are always looking for quality.  The right CFI candidates:

  • are committed to effective instruction
  • have good social skills and can work with a variety of students
  • are very involved in flight training and the flying community, and
  • want to teach full-time and fly 20+ hours per week.

We have an active Safety Seminar program and our CFIs regularly get public exposure sharing topics of their particular interest with the local pilot community.  Staff CFIs participate in the development of Flight Center training material and are involved in our FlyOutGroup events, BBQs, student groups, youth groups, etc.  Intelligence, energy, hygiene, personality, and quality instruction are all very important.  Our CFIs are highly competent, and able to teach really well.

The best way to investigate the possibility is to email us your resume or arrange to stop by sometime and meet with us.

You can move the process forward faster if you also send in:

  • a short description of why you fly and what your goal for your time here would be
  • a list of which of our aircraft you can fly now, and which you'd be interested in getting checked out in
  • or anything that can give us a sense of your personality and how you would contribute to San Carlos Flight Center
