I'm from Brazil, and I am working on an IFR certification process via AATD Training Course. We are having problems with the flight instructors; they must have valid IFR and CFI licences.
The instructors are pilots with more than 10000 hrs, that have already flown heavy jets and executive jets. Our national agency is not accepting our training program because they don't fly anymore and they don't have valid licences.
I would like to know how the certification process works in other countries, such as the US or in Europe.
