Flight Training

Certified Flight Instructor

NW Wings Aviation's instructor training picks up from your commercial license holding through to the completion of the Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) rating.  You will expand on your existing knowledge and learn how to train students to operate aircraft safely as well as the basic principles of flight and aircraft operation. 

Prior to getting started with your CFI rating you will have needed to met these requirements Under Part 61:

  • Have logged at least 250 hours total time.

  • Hold a Commercial Pilot Certificate or ATP (ASEL or AMEL) with Instrument Rating.

  • Hold a valid FAA 3rd Class Medical Certificate (or higher).



Elad teaches aviation thoroughly at a pace that suited me. He adapted well to the limitations of my plane and my aptitude, and he stuck with me until the ifr goal was acheived. I recommend him as a highly qualified and hard working cfi/cfii.


As someone who studied with multiple flight instructors, Elad with NW Wings Aviation was my best instructor. He is very professional and cares a lot about his students! Flying can be very stressful but he made a world of difference for me in any area of flying! I Would highly recommend flying with Elad Segal if you're interested in becoming a Pilot!


What a great experience getting to fly over the city and our neighborhood, and even got to take control of the plane as "pilot of the day". Our pilot was fantastic and explained everything in detail while reassuring my wife throughout (I didn't need it:)...I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to get out and live a little!
