Private Pilot Flight Training Syllabus for Instructors and Students

Copyright 2018/Updated to 2018

I'd like to offer you my FREE Private Pilot Flight Training Syllabus. It is completely FREE (so is the Ground School Flight Training Syllabus, too). Simply add the syllabus to your cart and head to checkout (add the ground school syllabus to your cart, too). Complete the checkout information and you'll see a link for the download on the checkout page. You'll also receive a download link via email. 

What's The Purpose of The Flight Training Syllabus?
This syllabus is intended for use by any flight instructor as well his or her student. Both should have a copy for their own personal use. This syllabus is the same tried-and-tested training guide that I've used to teach pilots for decades. It places a heavy emphasis on "stick and rudder" flying skills. If used properly, it can help a motivated student (one who is willing to do the homework and train at least two to three times a week) earn a private pilot certificate in a little over 40 hours of flight time.

What this syllabus does is eliminate the irrelevant items that bloat traditional syllabi and diminish a student's ability to learn. It's the perfect guide for any flight instructor who desires to accelerate his or her student's flight training progress as well as make the job of teaching a fun and enjoyable one. Let me explain the latter concept in more detail.

This syllabus identifies the study materials needed by the student prior to beginning flight training as well as the homework assignments the student is expected to complete prior to each lesson (and prior to beginning flight training). All the training materials suggested in this syllabus were designed to allow the student to enjoy learning about aviation as well as to make the instructor's job easier--MUCH EASIER! 

For example, most instructors tend not to enjoy spending ground time teaching a student how to plan a cross country flight. Fine! Flight instructors no longer need to do that. I've created an inexpensive interactive eLearning course that's 2.6 hours in length that explains the entire process of planning the first dual cross country flight. After listening to the course, the student will be more than capable of planning the flight that you recommend for his or her first dual cross country trip. 

Additionally, this syllabus doesn't rely on "fantasy flight training" concepts. It's a practical syllabus that prepares a student to be a safe private pilot who is capable of exercising his/her license to learn. It also includes many articles in the Appendix with tips and techniques for training. I hope you find it useful. If you have any suggestions or comments on this appliance, please run them by me at (general@rodmachado.com). I'd love to hear them.
