I am currently training to fly a PPC.  What are the requirements to become a instructor?  I know i'm a long way from that step, but very curious on it in the future.  There is no PPC instructors in my area, as i'm driving a hour away to get mine.

    The requirements to become an instructor is in the same place as the requirements for your PPC – Part 61 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR). Depending how early you are in your training, you may already have a copy of a so-called “FAR/AIM.” That book is a re-compilation of certain Parts of the FAR (almost always out of date) and the “Aeronautical Information Manual” (AIM).

    Look at the table of contents to the FAR; it’s your guide to what’s there. Look for the rules that apply to “flight instructors.”
