Hello,

I am a recent CFI/CFII. I have finally found my first student, who is also a CFI. He wants to add his CFII. Am I able to do this?

Thank You,

Blake

    CFI Applicant Ground Training Instructor Requirements
    61.195:

    (h) Qualifications of the flight instructor for training first-time flight instructor applicants. (1) The ground training provided to an initial applicant for a flight instructor certificate must be given by an authorized instructor who—
    (i) Holds a ground or flight instructor certificate with the appropriate rating, has held that certificate for at least 24 calendar months, and has given at least 40 hours of ground training; or
    (ii) Holds a ground or flight instructor certificate with the appropriate rating, and has given at least 100 hours of ground training in an FAA-approved course.
    Assuming you don’t have your AGI, which if you do then (h)(1) applies to you, you need to give 100 hours of ground training to provide the instructor with ground training. Either that or he has to take an ground course from someone who meets these requirements.
