Today I passed my Advanced Ground Instructor exam. Having done that, along with having passed my Fundamentals of Flight exam means that I can get my Advanced Ground Instructor certificate and potentially get paid to teach student pilots and current pilots on the ground.
An advanced ground instructor can provide the required knowledge training for any certificate issued under part 61. That means, private, commercial, airline transport pilot, etc.
I now need to contact the Rochester Flight Standards District Offices (FSDO) present my FOI and AGI exam scores and walk out with a temporary airmen certificate for Advanced Ground Instructor. My official one will be mailed to me a few weeks later.
Next project…REST and then in 2011 concentrate on my Instrument Rating.
