I charge a flat 45/hr for all. I haven't done any freelance ME stuff; but, if that opportunity were to come around I imagine I might charge a little more. I've never understood why schools/instructors charge more for advanced vs. primary. It's the same amout of work on my end regardless. So to keep things simple I charge a flat rate per hour rate (both flight and ground). This includes BFR's and IPC's.

$45/hr for all sounds about right. 7574EVER's comments about one rate for all was always my policy, too. Always found the time involved for BFR (FR)'s and ICC's way too variable to post a flat rate. A price differential between student-owned and "school" owned aircraft might make sense in order to cover the non-owner CFI insurance, if applicable.

$50/hr. and, most important, added as a named insured on the aircraft owners insurance policy.

Are there a lot of CFI jobs out there now and for those still instructing, are the students drying up?

Sharp decline back about September and it's very slowly starting to pick up a bit but not nearly enough.

Probably not worth it if you're working that hard at it. Of course, what do I know? I've been divorced twice....
