The FAA has granted the privilege (for which I am honored and grateful) to travel most anywhere around the USA (plus Alaska and Hawaii) to conduct your glider pilot checkride for PVT, COM, INITIAL CFI, CFI "add-on", CFI Renewal and a Reinstatement of an expired CFI-Glider.

As your Designated Pilot Examiner, I'm Fun, Fair and Faithful to the FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS.)

Note that I can now conduct your INITIAL Flight Instructor-Glider Certificate Practical Test ("checkride.")

Let's discuss the possibilities at burtcompton(at) (A0L) d0t com
My Facebook page with photos is "Burton Compton" - for your amusement.

Cost?

Let's discuss the possibilities privately at burtcompton(at) (A0L) d0t com

First, I'll need to know When, Where and Which glider certificate or rating the applicant is seeking.
Then I can estimate the cost for the applicant (or club)to reimburse me for travel expenses, etc.

Double up / Triple up. I am now allowed to conduct up to 3 checkrides in one day, if time permits.
Two or three applicants could split up the reimbursement of my travel costs.

Marfa, Texas (I fly commercial airline out of El Paso (ELP) or Midland (MAF) Texas airports.)

For iGlide support, try emailing them at . I've been in communication with Frank Woidich (AIR Avionics, which I believe is the parent company), regarding a few suggested upgrades, and have found him to be very receptive to input, which has been quite helpful.
