Always nice to know how many Instructors are on this site! Great Lot!

After obtaining the necessary hours required to start training for an instructor rating, do you need to have a school "sponsor" you (by that I mean have a school willing to hire you after your test)?

As always, Thanks a million

Logan,

Not in the US. Once you are certificated, you are virtually on your own for a job.

However, many good schools like to hire the best of their graduates. Makes sense, but it may not always be in the "new CFIs favor". Laughing

Nor is it required in JAA-land.

As AB mentioned some schools like to hire good students after completion of the course, they know where you did you training and know your skill level, it's minimal risk for them.

Remember, though, that you can't just go out with somebody in a helo and start instructing - you need to operate under an air operator's certificate, usually with a school. At least that's how it is in Oz.

Thats what I was planning on. No offense to anyone that trained that way but I'm not big on the idea of a private FI with a rented heli teaching students to fly (not sure on how common that is).

Personally I think a school is and would be the best idea. Thanks for the replies!

Logan,

There is no difference between an FI that works at a school, and an independent FI that works for themselves on the field, (assuming for this discussion only, that they were taught at the same place).
As for an FI using a "rented" aircraft for training, is a whole different topic taking in regulatory, and insurance requirements. Let's stay with this one for now.

Many FIs choose to work independently and there is nothing wrong with the way they train, or the quality of their training. I have taken training at some point or another during my 30+ years of flying wth an "indy" FI.

Schools are simpler to work for, in that they have the aircraft, facilities, pay the bills, provide students etc. Don't sell short an independent instructor. They are the ones who don't have a permanent "roof" over their head.....for now! Laughing

Iv'e been oner for most of my teaching career!. Very Happy

AB
