The additional responsibilities of flight instructors who teach new student pilots as well as rated pilots seeking add-on certification, the role of aviation instructors as safety advocates, and ways in which aviation instructors can enhance their professional image and development were explored.


Flight Literacy Recommends

The Flight Instructor's Manual - An invaluable reference for flight instructor applicants and serves as an indispensable guide for both new and experienced instructors (CFIs). This manual is organized so that each chapter serves as a stand-alone reference for a particular phase of instruction, allowing each to be used as "how to instruct" guides on topics such as fundamentals of flight instruction (FOI), presolo instruction, first solo to the private certificate, advanced VFR instruction, introduction to aerobatic instruction, and instrument instruction.
