THE CFI Academy difference
Personalized Lesson Plans and Coaching
Just as a fitness coach customizes your workout, monitors your daily progress and makes adjustments on the fly - we do the same for your CFI training.
Just did my MEI add on for CFI renewal. This school is by far (of the many I’ve seen nationwide) the best experience I’ve ever had. To be clear it is no big soul sucking 141 place – it is a quiet, cozy, well run place that will give you more value than you can imagine. Prince is a dedicated mentor, instructor, guide, and friend who will help you overcome any hurdle you may face in your CFI process.
