CFI's get paid for teaching time, meaning that they only get paid when there teaching someone, I think it's $25 but again thats only teaching time. When there sitting there doing nothing they aren't getting paid. Hope this helps.

It's a mixed bag here in the USA, some places treat CFIs as contracters, others treat them as employees. Almost all pay per hour worked and not much else (unless/until you reach a chief pilot position).

Instructors in Canada start at about $50,000 a year. B)

Does that mean they will make that $50,000 gauranteed, and more on top of that if they work more hours?

 

Or is that what they could make working 8 hrs/day, 5 days/week, or something similar to that?

Yes I know about the hourly pay. I have been instructing for about five years. what I'm curious about is a survey of *how* others out there get paid not what we get paid.

 

I'm thinking of starting a new business.

 

BTW. I've always been paid as a contractor for instructing.
