fellow pilots I have 3rd class SI and no issue renewing every year. My SI goes until 2025. I was thinking bout is it worth the time and money to maintain this SI for another 4 years or should i go BasicMed. I don't want to be airline pilots, but I'm getting my CFI and like to teach. here are the two simple questions: 1) can i be a CFI with BasicMed and get compensated? 2) How difficult is to go from BaiscMed to 3rd or 2nd class? see i told you it's simple questions: 1) Yes or No 2) Easy---somewhat difficult--- very difficult----Impossible. thank you and be safe.
