Still possible to get a flight instructor job?

I went home for the summer to finish all of my ratings and become a CFI.

I plan on returning to Arizona in fall for school working as a part-time flight instructor, but I am extremely concerned that I may not be able to find a job.

I can’t find too much information online other than many flight instructors are simply keeping their jobs longer and international students are prohibited from starting the ATP program. Is there any more insight I could have in regards to this topic?


There’s definitely a wrench in the food chain right now. Planes aren’t flying, Majors aren’t hiring so the Regionals aren’t hiring so the flight instructors aren’t getting hired. That said there is some level of hiring going on (cargo, corporate, etc). It’s definitely going to be challenging but if you search you should be able to find something. Hopefully.
