This new book presents lesson plans for flight instructors 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 materials. 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 Practical Test Standards (PTS). It explains how to teach each maneuver, making the flight instructor’s favorite syllabus curriculum even more effective 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 positively 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.
"When the student understands meaning before tackling detail, they learn more quickly and more completely. Arlynn seamlessly combines the 'why' with the 'how' of learning maneuvers…. Making instruction simple, clear, and easy to repeat provides the instructor with more tools for their teaching bag-of-tricks." —From the Foreword, by Frank Ayers, Ed.D. Executive Vice President, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
