Am I correct in that once you pass your CFI written and FOI, you can also be awarded an AGI?

    It’s the same test, but the one that qualifies you for the AGI has to be scheduled and taken as the AGI rather than the FIA – you have to take it twice.

    Jason is correct!  I would add that the question bank is the same but the FIA test uses only the airplane questions and no questions from the other categories of aircraft.  You will most likely be presented with questions about helicopters and gliders as well.

    Is it really true that Flight/Ground Instructor Book (fr. Gleim), will prepare you for the AGI?

    Im asking, cause to me it sounds kind of weird, that the regular CFI-A book (Flight/Ground Instr.) qualifies you to take a test for an “advanced ground instructor”.
