Soaring Safety Foundation (SSF) - Flight Instructor Refresher Clinic (FIRC)
March 4-5, 2017
CFIG? - Renew Your Glider Flight Instructor Certificate.....
The Soaring Safety Foundation (SSF) provides US flight instructors the ability to renew their FAA flight instructor certificate in a class tailored to the need of Flight Instructors, pilots, and students.
SSF FIRC's are open to any Flight Instructor wishing to renew their FI certificate. Tow-pilots who are airplane flight instructors can now renew by attending the SSF FIRC. SSF FIRCs are also open to any glider pilot who is interested in learning more about the art of Soaring. You do not need to be a flight instructor to attend an SSF FIRC.
The SSF now has an FAA approved ACR (Airman Certification Representative) on staff. At the successful completion of the course, the SSF ACR will use IACRA to issue a new temporary CFI certificate and file the paperwork with the FAA. This means that course attendees no longer need to schedule a visit with their local FSDO to complete the renewal process.
