Candidates should have a PPG3 rating and have done at least 5 Days (20 hours) of Apprentice work with a USPPA (or USHPA, ASC) Certified Instructor prior to the Clinic.
A PPG3 rating can possibly be administered concurrently with the Clinic for those who have the skills and requirements, but only if there is enough time. There may be a waiting period after the clinic for these pilots to receive their Instructor rating (180 days).
PPG Instructor Experience and Minimums:
Preparation: There will be some homework and preparation for each attendee so that we can get the most out of our time together. Once you register, we will be sending you more information about the assignments, including syllabus and study materials. You should also begin an Apprenticeship in preparation for the Instructor Clinic. This is a very important part of your training to become an Instructor since it gives you hands-on experience working with real PPG students. This is usually done with your local USPPA Instructor. You will need at least 20 hours working with them to satisfy those requirements.
Please note: Simply attending and participating in this clinic does not guarantee an Instructor Rating. You must have all of the qualifications and demonstrate instructing skills to the Instructor Administrator(s) satisfaction in order to attain this rating. Also, a minimum number of participants are needed to make the clinic work. Please check with us in advance of any clinic you may have enrolled in before you make your travel plans.
