I was able to renew my flight instructor certificate yesterday on the basis of activity. Eleven new pilots in the past two years, only one failed on the first checkride.

And the beat goes on.

Eleven? That's pretty good!

I renewed my CFI yesterday, too. American Flyers FIRC. Twelve hours of waiting for the timer runs out before advancing to the next page...

Gold seal? Sounds like you have enough activity.

That's a record one can be proud of.

Mine expires in Aug 2017.

The ORD Fsdo will renew active 121 Captains, based on us being in the regular business of pilot evaluations.

Our new FOs are tasked with twelve evals their first ( probationary ) year.

Reminds me, I probably have a few to accomplish. Usually if they need them, they mention it..unless they don't think they are doing well?

I've accomplished thirty eight evaluations since my last cfi renewal. (18 months)

I'd say that was in the regular business of evaluating pilot performance.
Yet, only a few Fsdo offices recognize this. Worst part, is our airlines own CMO won't allow their Fsdo folks to sign off our cfi renewals.

Brings up an entirely different thread idea.
"What does your FSDO allow that other office won't?"

Hmmm. Never thought about that.

Hi Gill,

With your background and Scott Dyers’ extensive flying experience I’m sure you guys bring a high standard to those you mentor.

I am on the schedule for a weekend in-person AOPA FIRC 3/4/2017 in Orlando. Hope me –n- da Cub make it home in time <g>.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Excellent!

I mainly do new club member checkouts, and C182 or C210 transitions. I am working with an instrument student this spring. My ratings average is about 1 every 3 years.
