Blackbushe Aviation conducts both part time and full time FI courses and offer the full range of Flight Instructor courses: Instrument Instructor, Multi Engine Instructor and Aerobatic Instructor. 

Flight Instructor course FI(R)
Comprises 30 hours flight training in the Cessna 152 and a comprehensive ground school of 125 hours, which runs for a two week period, prior to the flight training.

The FI(R) Rating allows the instructor to carry out flight training for the PPL under the supervision of a Fl on the aircraft class on which the test was completed.

The course fees are fully inclusive of flight and ground training.

Applied Instrument Instructor Course (IRI)
This is a 5 hour flight and 25 hour ground course allowing the instructor to teach the IMC Rating and other instrument flying.

Aerobatic Instructor Rating
This is slightly different from the other courses in that a satisfactory course completion statement, rather than a test, is required in order to remove this restriction from the instructor rating. The aerobatic course comprises of 5 hours flight and 15 hours ground school.
