The training time required to obtain the CFI rating depends largely on the individual's experience and proficiency in single engine complex aircraft. Since the CFI rating is largely a function of teaching skills, it is difficult to place an exact amount on the cost of the training required. For an individual who has passed the two required FAA written tests, expect about 25 hours of ground instruction, and about 15 hours of flight training in a Piper Arrow.
Instrument Flight Instructor Course
An applicant who holds a valid flight instructor certificate may add the instrument instructor certificate at minimal cost. As with the CFI certificate, experience and currency will determine the length and cost of the course. With the FAA written passed, expect about 10 hours in a C172, and about 15 hours of ground instruction.
