The Flight Instructor’s Manual is an invaluable reference for flight instructor applicants and serves as an indispensable guide for new and experienced instructors (CFIs). Organized so each chapter can be used as a stand-alone reference for a particular phase of instruction, allowing it to serve as a “how to teach” guide on topics including fundamentals of flight instruction (FOI), pre-solo instruction, first solo to the private certificate, advanced VFR instruction, introduction to aerobatic instruction, and instrument instruction. The book also features a comprehensive spin syllabus, the material on multi-engine airplanes, instructing international students, teaching ground school, and setting up tests.

With teaching tips on:

  • Fundamentals of Flight Instruction (FOI)
  • Pre solo
  • First Solo to the Private Certificate
  • Complex Single-Engine Airplanes
  • Light Twins
  • Spins
  • Aerobatics
  • Instruments
