And people say no one has a professional attitude any more. BLing, you are a credit to........ well something other than teaching.BLing said:I cant wait until I dont have to be a CFI anymore! I take that back, I cant wait until I dont have use my CFI as a stepping stone!
Kudos to renewing. I have an FO friend who needs to renew in January, but he says he won't because he doesn't want to. Why would anyone not want to renew their certificate, even if they don't teach actively? It shows status and I've heard the CFI practical is the hardest test to pass these days.na265 said:Can't believe this is the 8th time I've renewed.
I think it was $99 before, but there is an option for electronic renewal through the FAA instead of bringing the paperwork to the FSDO to renew, which costs $20 or so extra. The nearest FSDO was about 2 hours away from me, so I just paid the $20 extra.na265 said:Tanker, good news, it is only $99.00 now. So much for that tax deduction.
Hey na, if you can get it done in SAT quicker and can get up here, call me and I'll give you a ride to the FSDO.na265 said:I'll add a bit more on this. Called the local FSDO, in Houston, they said they only do CFI renewals on the first Friday of every month. It seems they are way understaffed. I will need to call a DE, and pay a fee, to get renewed. Maybe I'll have to do the on-line deal like you did Tanker.
I guess nothing is free any more.
