hey guys,
how many hrs do you have to have before you go from private, to inst, to commercial, to multi, to CFI?? is there a set amount of hrs?

it depends which reg you do training under, you could finish your Comm at 190hrs or 250. There is no set time for CFI, but you must have the Commercial first.
sorry mate,
that place is hard to get around in and i just thought i would post a simple question on here..
