I went after my CFI-S (CFI Sport Pilot) rating this past spring but ran into some issues with the school and their planes. I have my two written tests completed (CFI-S and FOI) but need to complete the training, schedule, and take the practical. It's been hard finding schools with Light Sport planes available to train in, AND instructors that can train in them for a CFI-S, AND a DPE that is authorized to give the CFI-S exam (not all DPEs that do CFI's can do CFI-S, it is a separate authorization), AND that DPE isn't booked out until next year. I'm an Instrument rated PPL, with SES rating and a good many hours in many log books. Any thoughts or advice is appreciated.
