$2,595 in New York.
ATP's instrument instructor rating program adds instrument instructor privileges to your existing Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) Certificate with multi-engine privileges. This program provides all necessary ground and flight instruction for tasks required by the Multi-Engine Instrument Instructor Practical Test Standards. Two training flights between 1.5 to 2 hours each, and use of the aircraft for the checkride are included.
ATP will send you the “Piper Seminole Training Supplement” before your training. This booklet covers multi-engine aerodynamics, aircraft systems, checklist procedures, flight procedures, weight & balance, and a checkride oral review. All checklists, required charts, instrument approach plates, Piper’s “Seminole Information Manual,” and the Seminole POH will be made available at the flight training center.Request More Info
