13 days after starting CFII training, I have completed it.
I took and passed my CFII checkride today with a score of 95/95. Which, as far as I’m concerned, is pretty freaking perfect.
I heard pretty much nothing but very good remarks about the oral and flight examination. I felt really good going into this checkride and all the hard work thus far has really paid off. I really couldn’t be happier at this time.
Up next for me is standardization Monday. That is about 3-4 weeks of review training to make sure I’m capable of teaching to the standards the school looks for. After that I will get some students, and start teaching! I’m looking forward to that part so much right now. To be able to take someone from nothing to a rated pilot!
This is where the real learning begins, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.
