R44 CFI/CFII Pilot – Colorado
Our school’s culture is welcoming, safe, and a relaxing place to learn. We stand by the belief that helicopters are one of the coolest inventions humankind has ever produced. We want to share our view of the Colorado mountains from the skies with the world, locally through breathtaking flights and globally through inspiring social media. We provide our instructors with a community of lifelong friends and students they’re proud to mentor.
As a boutique flight school training under Part 61/91 we are flexible to a wide variety of circumstances and goals, as we believe it provides students with options for an instructor who matches them best. We are open to a CFI interested in building as many hours as fast as possible as well as a part-time CFI wanting to share their love of helicopters by taking on a lighter schedule. We will work with you to determine your ideal number of hours and schedule.
If you are a more experienced pilot, you will be given freedom without micromanaging to innovate and foster a culture that is welcoming and has a stellar safety record. We are seeking someone who loves mentoring newer CFI’s, loves aviation, and wants to be part of building this community.
If you are a newer CFI, we are invested in mentorship to help you develop your skills as an instructor. We have consulting relationships with very experienced, career, flight instructors and will do periodic seminars with them. We believe great instructors make great pilots and a vibrant local aviation community.
