LESC CFIG Kit
Revision 1.10 - updated June 4, 2006
|I have read and understand the items listed in this LESC CFIG Orientation Kit and will comply with the the directions held within.|
|LESC CFIG Candidate:||Date:|
|I have made a dual flight and briefed the above signed LESC CFIG candidate on the items listed in this LESC CFIG Orientation Kit, reviewed thier logbook and license and recommend them for authorization as an LESC CFIG.|
|LESC Chief Instructor:||Date:|
Every prospective instructor will need to review this material and the above
reference material before conducting
a review with LESC's Chief Instructor. This review will consist of an "oral
examination" of sorts
to make sure prospective CFIG understands this material and answer any
questions they may have as well as a dual flight
with LESC's Chief Instructor. They will also be asked to provide thier
logbook(s) showing flight experience and
present thier Comercial Pilot Glider and accompaning Flight Instructor Glider
Certificates for verification.
Once the review has been completed, the prospective CFIG can then be
recommended to the Board for consideration. Once authorized by the Board, only
then will the new LESC CFIG be eligible for the LESC CFIG Dues Compensation
Policy. After 90 days of inactivity, insructors will be removed
from the Intructor Roster based on their instructional service
and must either
begin paying monthly dues or perform other services as deemed appropriate by
the Board. To be reinstated, the CFIG needs to contact LESC’s Chief Instructor.
This will give him the opportunity to review any policy and or SOP changes and
determine if the CFIG’s service is required.
Each instructor is responsible for their own scheduling. Instructors will
signup for the days which they want to give
lessons. It is desirable for both the students and the rest of the
instructional staff if a CFIG can commit to covering
a day on a regular basis. If the instructor does commit to a regular schedule,
it is their responsibility to inform
everyone when they must deviate from their schedule and to arrange for coverage
by another authorized instructor on staff.
To help facilitate scheduling of instructors, there is an online schedule that
can be viewed at
Once authorized by the Board, instructors
will be given the access information so that they can make changes to add
themselves to the schedule.
After the student's first solo they will receive the
From Solo to License letter
and pick up a copy of After Solo to help
them through the next phases of their training.
The student will have to return to dual training until such a time as the CFIG
makes another logbook entry authorizing them
for 5 solo flights or 30 days, which ever comes first. The process is repeated
with the subsequent solo authorization
periods of 30 days (not restricted by number of flights) followed by a 45 day
With each 45 day solo endorsement, the student will receive a homework
assignment that must be completed prior to
subsequent 45 day solo endorsements. These homework assignments are non-flying
tasks such as Pseudo Adiabatic Charts or
Cross Country Profiles and are targeted to help the student achieve thier
Private Pilot rating.
When the student receives their second 45 day solo endorsement, an entry is
made in their training file and they are made
aware that they will be required to bring passing written test results in order
to receive subsequent 45 day solo
endorsements. There are exceptions to this rule such as students who are too
young to obtain their Private Pilot Rating.
