Flight Instructor Course Details

​Course Schedule:

  • All our Flight Instructor courses typically start on a Monday.  To schedule a CFI course and, or CFII course, contact us directly by phone 218-879-6599 to discuss course details or Email us at: Staff@VentureNorthAviation.com.  We will email you a one-page application, to get some information on you, and a letter on area hotels and what to bring with you when you come for the CFI course.

Additional Ratings:

  • You can add a CFII course to an existing scheduled initial CFI course. Many pilots attending an initial CFI course will add the 5-day CFII course (Instrument Flight Instructor Course) to a scheduled initial Flight Instructor course.  The CFII course is an additional 5-days in length.  Example: You will train for the Initial CFI Monday through Friday and then take the CFI course FAA practical test.  The following Monday through Friday you would train for the CFII and then take the CFII course FAA practical test on Friday to finish your flight training

​CFI Training Materials:

  • Once you are enrolled and scheduled for a CFI course and, or CFII course, our staff will email you a link so you can download your Flight Instructor course training materials.  The training material will include CFI course fundamentals of instruction study material as well as CFI course technical subject matter.  Please review the flight instructor training material in detail prior to your arrival.

​FAA Practical Test Checkride:

  • You have the option of having us schedule the Flight Instructor practical test as part of your course with a local FAA Pilot examiner.  You also have the option of receiving the recommendation and taking the test locally where you live.  The fee for the Flight Instructor practical test is typically paid directly to the FAA Pilot Examiner at their requested rate.  Example: if your Flight Instructor course ended on a Friday, we would schedule a Flight Instructor CFI practical test that following week Monday or Tuesday to minimize your stay.
