Certified flight instructors are rarely educators. Many see instruction as a stepping-stone to the next level of their flight careers and assume that merely telling is the equivalent of teaching. This mistake is detrimental to both students and the aviation industry. Telling a student something has no bearing on actual learning. True teaching requires a much deeper level of communication. Veteran flight instructor and educator Mike Thompson applies principles of educational psychology to the FAA-H-8083-9A Aviation Instructor's Handbook. Using simple, down-to-earth language, Thompson examines how to enable genuine teaching by developing the student-instructor relationship. Teaching is a human endeavor requiring an investment from student and instructor alike. Initially, it takes time to build a relationship with students, but once it's established, rates of engagement and retention increase. True learning is then achieved. Despite advances in educational technology, the human brain continues to learn as it always has. Thompson applies his knowledge of how people really learn and how to build effective student-teacher relationships to provide flight instructors with skills they can use to encourage deep and advanced learning. While primarily aimed at the aviation industry, Thompson's no-nonsense discussion of teaching and educational psychology is applicable in any instructional arena.

"In addition to demonstrating proficiency as a safe and effective pilot, instructors must be able to teach flight. Communicating effectively and facilitating student learning is at the heart of a flight instructor's job, and this requires a bit of psychology to understand how people learn. All flight (CFI) and ground instructors must take the FAA Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) Knowledge Exam. The Aviation Instructor's Handbook is the primary reference for this FOI Knowledge Exam and an important text to introduce the needed psychology relative to teaching. However, the basic, hands-on, practical application of the material can be lost in the theoretical coverage. As a result, instructors result to memorizing acronyms for testing, rather than learning how to be an effective instructor. The Flight Instructor's Survival Guide is a companion text for The Aviation Instructor's Handbook allowing instructors to be the proverbial fly-on-the-wall in watching this important information being used to make a safe pilot. Student pilot readers will gain perspective that they aren't the only ones experiencing a particular issue in their flight training. This book is necessary for anyone striving to be aviation-citizens with character, professionalism and ethical values. Delightful and full of wisdom and humor, Arlynn's book is a gift to all flight instructors who will inevitably share or recognize these fundamentals of instructing issues in their own cast of clients"--Provided by publisher.

This guide for flight instructors presents lesson plans in the form of scenario-based "maneuver briefings." A rich resource for active instructors, these lesson plans are also helpful to CFI applicants preparing their own materi-als. Lesson Plans can also be used as a companion book for flight instructors who are following the principles of scenario-based training taught in Arlynn McMahon's first book, Train Like You Fly: A Flight Instructor's Guide to Scenario-Based Training. Lesson Plans is designed to work in complement with any syllabus and the FAA Airman Certification Standards (ACS). It explains how to teach each maneuver, making the flight instructor's favorite syllabus curriculum even more effec-tive and enjoyable for flight students. Each maneuver briefing features a series of drawings instructors can discuss with their students or replicate in the classroom and an accompanying script to teach from, which includes a story or motivation on the why and how the maneuver is applied in actual flight. Common errors are discussed in the form of keys to success, to posi-tively inspire students to become sound aviation citizens. In addition to the lesson plans, the book includes templates, checklists, and student assignments to build proper flight preparation habits and help determine the student's readiness to act as pilot-in-command. These tools are especially helpful to the flight instructor ahead of the major flight training milestones, such as first solo, solo cross-country, and the checkride.
