Skyline conducts the Flight Instructor Course thrice annually.
It is meant for those CPL holders who would like to take up to flight instructing and also for those who would like to advance their careers in Aviation and enhance their proficiency.
Flight Instructors are much sought-after by flight schools as well as other private operators. The FI rating also adds to one's marketability and provideds a definite advantage when it comes to selection of pilots by airlines. Skyline has concluded two batches on the Flight Instructor Course to date. The first batch saw the graduation of four Instructors in July last year (2008). All four of them have been employed by Skyline and still continue to serve the Company.
The second Flight Instructor course was sucessfully completed in mid March 2009. The second batch comprised a total of six instructors, and attracted Professional Airline Pilots; Capt. Anil Jayasinghe and Capt. Gihan Fernando - both Boeing 747 Captains currently flying for Singapore Airlines.
The course, having been patronised by such professionals in the International Aviation Industry, sends out a distinct message to the budding professional - to take up to advanced training programmes such as the flight instructor course to enhance their professional worth.
