We are a community of passionate, aviation professionals.
Certificated Flight Instructor
We are pleased to offer CFI’s salaried positions starting at $45,000/year.
CFI’s are the foundation of the aviation industry. We believe they should be treated as professionals. We believe that if a person loves to teach and loves to fly, they should be able to earn a good living as an Instructor. We believe that flight instructors can do more than just build hours; they are continuing a tradition and inspiring the next generation of aviators.
Horizon Aviation is proud to offer those with a passion for teaching and a driving commitment to their student’s success the opportunity to join our team of professional aviation educators.
Our students success: Our instructors put their students first by providing honest guidance that maximizes the efficiency and effectiveness of their training experience. At every stage, our instructors are evaluating what is best for the their students. The question is never how “I can benefit” from a lesson, it is always how does this help my student.
The ability to teach: A CFI certificate does not guarantee that a person is an effective teacher. Each of our CFI’s undergoes a thorough evaluation and coaching process with our chief pilot. We want you to be the best, and we will help you get there. You need to be the type of pilot that makes people say “they know their stuff.”
We know that most instructors are building time so that that they may progress in their careers. We want you to succeed and we want to be a part in that success. Our past instructors are now flying for a variety of airlines, and charter companies and we could not be prouder of their accomplishments.
