Well I started CFI/II school yesterday and I was wondering where I could get some premade lesson plans to help me make up my own? Thanks for the help guys.
Pretty sure Jeppesen makes a spiral bound lesson plan book. I'd say getting the lesson plans themselves pre-made is alright; but, make your own notes! Don't take the easy way out with this certificate.
I made several large 3" binders going while going through all my CFI certs....particularly the initial. I spent many many nights up until 3am just typing away at the computer with a bunch of books in front of me for reference. It was a lot of work; but, it pays off. It impressed the you know what out of my fed examiner for the ride and the oral was relatively painless because of it.
Those binders will be something that I will always have...mainly for sentimental value. Too much work into those things to let anything happen to 'em.
Basically what should you teach first. I was thinking basic aerodynamcis and then flying to reinforce that oral lesson? Thoughts
me an him dont get along he gets off to starting crap with ppl
My biggest concern is where to start with a new ppl student. Basically what should you teach first. I was thinking basic aerodynamcis and then flying to reinforce that oral lesson? Thoughts
The International Standard Aviation language IS ENGLISH. How do you plan to communicate with your students if you can’t speak ENGLISH? If you want to teach aviation you must know the requirements for certification. I’m not sure you are worth my time yet (since this is free Distance Learning for you) so please answer this question:
Riddle me this: What is the US Aviation English requirement and where do you find it? You must have learned this to have any FAA certificate.
Folks, please let him do this on his own. If he can’t find a simple requirement, how will he ever ensure that his students are prepared?
When I was first hired on as a green instructor, the only flights I did were covering for other instructors with students who were either close to solo, had already soloed or were certificated and needed a checkout. This made the teaching transition easier as the student already had some of the basics down. You just needed to point out this or that without being insecure about how well you're teaching this student from scratch.
Starting out, I also did a lot of intro flights as well. The school would set up instructors with the intro students and you'd take them up for 30 minutes or so and show them some basics. If the student continued the training, they were your student. It was up to you to keep up with them, making sure they flew and help secure financing if necessary.
Avbug may come across a little cantankerous, but he's fairly wise and experienced. You'll learn more by listening, rather than insulting him. Call it tough love. Understand that you come across a little arrogant around here and thats only natural. A lot of young aspiring pilots fit this mould. Some of what you get from Avbug or anyone else is a form of hazing of sorts. Most of what he says is for your own good though.
No, some poor student may be stuck with you, and yes, the poor student does deserve better. You're right about that.I'm going to get stuck with some poor PPL student that deserves better instruction than I can give.
Clearly. An admirable trait in a pilot.Ugh I'm so stressed.
Again, this much is obvious.As for your question I have no clue.
Ah, well then. You've already learned everything, haven't you? If your six instructors didn't tell you, then you'll never need to know it. You've already been told everything you need to know, and if it hasn't been spoon-fed to you by these icons of aviation, then you really don't need to know it.It's obviously not a big deal if the 6 or so instructors I've had never told me about it.
