Aerobatics Instructor Training

Course Requirements

• The candidate must hold an EASA Part FCL Aerobatic Rating.
• Hold a valid FI(A) or CRI(A) rating or completed the basic flying instructor course.

Course Content

EASA Part FCL 905.FI does not specify a course to gain an aerobatic instructor rating.  It only requires an assessment of a candidates competence by an FIE.  Assessment of whether training in aerobatic instruction is necessary before a pilot undergoes a flight assessment is a matter of judgement by the Western Air Head of Training.  Any such requirement is unlikely to exceed the previous LASORS requirement of five hours flying and eight hours ground instruction.
