I’m currently doing what is called ‘Standardization’. This is what FlightSafety puts their new hire CFIs through to ensure that everyone teaches they way FlightSafety wants them to. It’s a few weeks long, and covers all aspects of my job as an instructor here.
Today I had a flight to ensure that my flying and teaching are up to par with what they’re looking for. This was my first time I ever flew an airplane, and got paid for it. Even though the flight itself wasn’t as good as I knew it could have been, it’s still a pretty good feeling. It has been a long time coming, but I’m finally getting paid to do what I love.
