Program Overview

Learn To Teach & Become A Better Pilot

The Flight Instructor Principles and Methods of Instruction (PMI) course is a requirement for any pilot that is considering a career pathway that involves teaching flight training, whether that be through practical aircraft training, flight simulator training, drone training or ground theory. A standard component of the Flight Instructor Rating (FIR), we also offer this PMI as a standalone course.

The PMI course doesn’t just give you the confidence to become a better teacher, it solidifies and strengthens the knowledge you have already gained as a pilot. Learning how to best teach the next generation of pilots is a skill that will make you a better pilot yourself.

Learn Wherever You Are

“Completing the PMI course allowed me to understand the fundamentals of why we learn and how to adapt techniques to suit a variety of students. This has allowed me to develop my own teaching style, which I will take with me throughout my career. LTF’s experienced instructors come from various aviation backgrounds, providing a unique perspective on topics that enhance understanding beyond just following a textbook, with a strong focus on creating a fun and supportive learning environment.” – Summer Russell, Flight Instructor Rating (FIR) Graduate
