Flight Training: Certified Flight Instructor
After obtaining your commercial rating, the most common way to build your hours is to obtain your Flight Instructor (CFI) rating and start teaching new students. The FAA minimum hours of experience for hire with commercial airlines is 1,500 hours. You may also obtain your Flight Instructor Instrument rating (CFI-I) which lets you train instrument students, and multi-engine instructor (MEI) rating to teach multi-engine students.
