One way to increase your flight time and gain experience is to become a flight instructor

Certified flight instructors (CFI) offer primary instruction for the Private Pilot Certificate as well as more advanced instruction toward a Commercial Certificate, Instrument Rating, Multi-Engine Rating, and Airline Transport Pilot Certificate. While teaching, you can log hours as flight time and get paid for the hours. The focus of our CFI program is to train you to become a considerate and thoughtful flight instructor who can motivate and inspire students.
