CERTIfied flight instructor*

We have our CFI candidates work directly with our chief pilot or assistant chief.  Getting your CFI requires a "fundamentals of instruction" exam and also a CFI knowledge exam.  Summit at the Bentonville location is an approved Lasergrade testing site.

Once you have worked with our instructors showing you can properly teach others the principles of flying and displayed proficiency in teaching all the required manuvers, we will help to set up a flight with the FAA examiner.  We generally use our very economical Piper Arrow or our Cessna 182RG for the training and check ride.
