Job Description – Single Engine Flight Instructor (IRI)
We are looking for exceptional Single Engine Flight Instructors (IRI) to join our highly skilled and professional team at our new training facility in Castellon. We opened this new base in August 2019 and at this exciting stage of our company growth we are looking to grow the flight instruction team. We operate the DA40 fleet at our Spanish base.
Responsibilities in the role would include conducting training in accordance with the approved syllabus, and in compliance with the Academy published schedule/programme. You would be expected to comply with all rules and procedures detailed in the Academy Operations Manual and to uphold flight safety in every aspect of training, including monitoring the maintenance condition of the training fleet and reporting any defects to operations.
Responsibilities to the cadets will include ensuring each cadet is appropriately briefed and debriefed following training, and monitoring every assigned cadet’s progress through their training programme. Any training performance problems should be reported to the CFI or designated representative. Skyborne has developed high standards of training and performance and it is the responsibility of the FI’s to ensure these standards are promoted and maintained at all times.
Whilst Skyborne will cover revalidation and medical renewal expenses, all FI’s need to take personal responsibility for monitoring their own license and rating validity and making sure that their personal log book is up-to-date and accurate.
