Time to renew your CFI certficate? You can renew your flight instructor certificate up to four calendar months in advance of its expiration date while still keeping the original expiration month - so don't procrastinate!
"If your certificate expires, the only option you have to get it back is to take a checkride," said AOPA Air Safety Foundation Chief Flight Instructor JJ Greenway. "The Air Safety Foundation can help you renew your certificate on time through its Flight Instructor Refresher Clinics."
FIRCs can be completed online, allowing you to renew at your own pace, or in person during a two-day course. The in-person FIRCs also include the Transportation Security Administration's initial security awareness training.
