A great addition to your commercial pilot certificate the certified flight instructor is broken down into two parts. The "CFI" allows you to teach such certificates as private or commercial, while its complement, the "CFII" allows the you to teach instrument students. The certified flight instructor is a great opportunity for pilots looking to advance to a career as a professional pilot and therefore bridging the gap between your commercial rating and the insurance requirements to fly larger aircraft. While instructing, all hours that you fly in the aircraft with students can be logged. This is known as "dual instruction".
