Black Bear Posted September 4, 2013 Report Share Posted September 4, 2013 Over the years I have read many posts about the industry and how the standard is to become a CFI then train others to become a CFI, in order to build the time needed to advance your career. I get that. But I have two questions, 1. In such a small industry, with sometimes limited opportunities, how do you deal with the fact that as a CFI, you are creating your own competition? 2. During your career, as you have changed jobs within the industry, as I'm sure some have, have you ever been beaten out by one of your students and if so, how did that make you feel? Pissed off because you were betting on a career advancement for the sake of your family, for example, or were you proud because you know you produced a good pilot? Maybe this is an unusual scenario, but I'm willing to bet that with a market flooded with CFI's this will someday be a common occurrence. Feel free to share you thoughts.
