Preping for the AGI test.

Asked by: 4651 views Flight Instructor

I'm getting back into the cockpit shortly, after a lengthy lay-off due to the economics of my situation, ie. better to keep a roof over my head than adding hours to my logbook. I bought a copy of the Gleim FOI and Flight and Ground Instructor test books back in 2012 when I started my CFI training before my layoff. My question is: should I use these older copies to study up for the AGI test or should I pitch them in the trash and start fresh? I know it sounds cheap of me, but ever penny saved is a penny towards getting the hobbs meter rolling again.

    Hope y’all doing just fine. Currently I’m a holder of A Commercial Pilot Certificate ME/SE land instrument airplane, also I have in my possession an Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate. Recently I was thinking to step it up just a bit and obtain my AGI and was looking at 14 CFR 61.215 and understood that I only have to give couple of written exams “FOI and AGI” and that will qualify me for an AGI Certificate , I’m I right?.
    Are there any other requirements that I have neglected?. Moreover, in order to become an AGI do I have to obtain my BGI then IGI or I just can go ahead and apply for an AGI . My interpretation from going through different sources, the AGI have the same privileges as the BGI and IGI, correct me if I’m wrong please!!.

    Appreciate it flyers, y’all fly safe.
