Certified Flight Instructor (CFI)
tail view of Schweizer 300cb/cbi  This course is available to pilots holding the Commercial Pilot Helicopter certificate. In lieu of the   course as listed below, students in the Commercial Pilot course may begin training toward the CFI   certificate during their Commercial Pilot course. This will reflect in a tremendous cost savings to the   student. The price shown is for non-Helicopter Flight Services students looking to obtain their CFI   rating. If the student has been at Helicopter Flight Services for their other ratings (i.e. Private Pilot,   IFR) then the cost per hour for the aircraft is $400.00/Hr
