Rick Bartle, Founder and Senior Advisor for Stratus Business Development, has created a course in cooperation with the National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) titled "Plan Now or Pay Later". This course is offered to NAFI members as part of their Professional Development Program (PDP). The PDP is a growing library of free courses available to NAFI members covering a variety of topics including Leadership, Business Operations, Risk Management, and, of course, Flight Instruction.
"Plan Now or Pay Later" is an introductory look at best practices for establishing and maintaining a stable financial foundation for your new enterprise. Any CFI aspiring to launch their own business will benefit form this course. While the course is designed for the entrepreneur CFI, it will apply to anyone thinking about starting their own business.
