I have had a few friends who have worked there. Never heard anything good about either the job or the program. But it cant hurt to try it out yourself and see if it works for you. If not you can always quit.
IMO I don't think it is that bad of a gig. You are given 10 students that you can work with Mon-Sat, full benefits, paid tuition if you would like to further your education. We have 152s 172s 182RGs and a pa44-180. A couple of the 172 are newer maybe 00s fuel injected pretty nice. A new 02-20 runway was completed last year which allows us to fly a lot more. Talks of a tower in 07. Lewis has a policy that when winds are gusting over 25 all planes are grounded. Any more questions PM me.
On a more serious note, i worked there for about a year before leaving for my current job (see profile).... LewisU is correct - 10 students, they each fly 3 times a week, 2 hour blocks, work 6 days a week 7:30-5:30. In the summers, you make your own schedule, some of your students will stay around for the summer, some are not local and go home. Full benefits. Free Tuition. Great group of instructors (with the exception of a certain one ...) the chief pilot and asst chiefs are great people, they do not micromanage. One poster previously mentioned not flying in high winds, I found everyone would fly right up to our insurance imposed 25knot rule, which yes, sucks... I took my students in actual as early and often as possible, and a lot of others do too. The chief does not care, unless you are obviously and carelessly flying through crap you shouldn't.... The maintenance is good (I'm an A&P, can tell the difference). Never had an issue that didn't get attention, and nothing unsafe. The uniforms yes suck, you wear them during the school year (not in summer), mon-thurs, any other day is a polo and shorts if its hot. What I liked about lewis compared to other instructing jobs (it was not my first) -
10 students, given to you, no marketing, cold calling and searching for intro flights
Full Benefits, almost unheard of in this day and age for an instructing job
Free Tuiton, get a masters
Multi time, if you have a student going into the twin and you are a MEI, its your student, none of the "multi students only fly with the chief pilot" crap like at some flight schools.
Set schedule, although if it is a crappy day weatherwise, you can either do ground, or not come in at all (I tended to go back to bed if I woke up and it was 200 and 1/2)
I do miss the set schedule and being home every night sometimes, especially when getting up for another "O'Dark Thirty" showtime in BUFU. And you will not find a better group of instructors...
