Flight Instructor

Would you like to be the best instructor you can be? Then let me help. My Private Pilot Handbook provides an excellent resource for helping you understand how to present information to your student (it's also great for your CFI checkride prep, too). My How to Fly an Airplane Manual does the same. It's also the perfect book to give to your students before they begin flight training. Its chapters are organized in the order that you typically teach basic flight maneuvers. Assign chapter one, two, three and so on prior to each less and (if the student does the homework) he or she will show up prepared, making your job a lot easier.

Speaking of making your job easier, you definitely want to have your students purchase my Interactive eLearning courses for their own use. Imagine assigning my interactive Cross Country Flight Planning course to your students and having them show up for a lesson with a completed flight log in hand for their first dual cross country flight. That's what these courses can do for you. Finally, if you're interested in teaching ground school, consider purchasing my ground school slides, too. There are over 600 of them that can be used during ground school PowerPoint presentations.
