What do CFI, CFII, MEI, ATP, Type Rating mean?

A CFI (Certified Flight Instructor) can teach flying to new pilots working on the Private Pilot Certificate and Commercial in a single engine aircraft. (All of our instructors have CFI).

A CFII (Certified Flight Instructor Instrument) can teach pilots working on their Instrument Rating in a single engine aircraft.

A MEI (Multi-Engine Instructor) can teach multi-engine and if they have their CFII, they can teach Instrument Rating in a multi-engine aircraft.

An ATP (Airline Transport Pilot) is the highest pilot certificate a pilot can earn. Once you obtain an ATP, you generally start working on type ratings.

Type Ratings: certification to fly a large or jet aircraft. You need an ATP certificate to obtain a type rating.
