WHAT IS YOUR CHECKRIDE PASS RATE?
The National Average Pass Rate for the CFI Initial Checkride is close to 50% (this is a very difficult Checkride). However, wifiCFI boasts a Checkride Pass Rate of 80%! This is due to our strict enrollment processes, industry experience, top notch lesson plans, endorsement runner scenario, and more.
