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.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
