Application for Renewal

If you want to maintain your current CFI renewal cycle (expiration month):

  • Do not complete more than 8 lessons until you are less than one year from expiration.
  • Do not complete the program until you are inside your renewal window – within the three months preceeding the month of expiration as per FAR 61.197.

Of course you are free to complete the course whenever you’d like so long as it is before your current CFI certificate expires. But understand that if you complete outside of the parameters stated above, you will reset your renewal cycle for the month of course completion.

You must complete the “Submit Application for CFI Renewal” section in order to process the course completion for renewal.
