Instructors Rating
Achieving the Instructors Rating allows the CPL-qualified pilot to teach others to fly, and to pass his professionalism, high standards and passion for flying on to others.

The prospective student must:

- Be in possession of a valid CPL.
- Pass the required CAA-prescribed theoretical examinations (2).
- Be able to prepare lectures and briefings of a suitable standard.
- Have accumulated 20 hours of ‘Patter’ (flight training).
- Obtain a letter of recommendation from a grade I or II instructor.
- Pass a practical flight test with CAA examiner.

Renewal of an instructors rating requires that the holder must have given a minimum of 20 hours instruction during the current year, and have passed a flight test after the 1st year, and thereafter every 3rd year. After qualifying as a Grade III instructor he/she may advance to Grade II, as experience develops.
