I can be called a Certified Flight Instructor! Boy I never thought I would ever make it to that level of knowledge!

Haha, I'll be staying here teaching for my college and the Boeing club when I have time.I think Houston is a little to warm for me. It is only 90 degrees right now and I can't take our usual heat here in Washington for the summer.

Congrats dude-How many hours do you have now? Are you going for the CFII? Even though I have no interest in aviation as a career (doesn't pay enough now that I'm 35 and well established) I would LOVE to be a part time instructor because I LOVE flying, and LOVE teaching. I would love nothing more than to teach people how to fly.Cherish every moment with every student- remember they were all naive starry-eyed pupils like you were at one point! There is nothing I hate more than an instructor who is just "building hours"- You will build the hours no matter how you act, so try to be the best instructor in the universe, and you may someday have accomplished pilots calling you up and thanking you for all you gave them.Since I am still that starry-eyed student, if you make it up to the northeast, I'd love to let you sit in the right seat at shoot the bull :)

I have 263.7 hours currently and I will be doing my CFII and MEI in the fall. I should be instructing for around 2 years before I leave here for better skies.

Better skies as in a little bit more then $12 an hour. I would like to do them in one ride but I can get it for a little cheaper if I do them seperately which sounds weird but it's the way it works around here.

I was thinking about (don't shoot me) Mesa. Most everyone hates it but it can't be that bad you can get jet time! ;) I feel though that I have to instruct and pay it back what others have helped me with.

If I had my choice I would like to stay in the Northwest and go to Horizon or commute over to GEG and fly for expressjet but right now those are both popular places that are next to impossible to get on with my times I have.
