The Teaching Process

Go back to the main Aviation Instructor Page.

The teaching process organizes the material an instructor wishes to teach in such a way that the learner understands what is being taught. An effective instructor uses a combination of teaching methods as well as instructional aids to achieve this goal.

By being well prepared, an effective instructor presents and applies lesson material, and also periodically assesses how well the learner is learning. An effective instructor never stops learning. He or she maintains currency in the subject matter being taught, as well as how to teach it by reading professional journals and other aviation publications, many of which can be viewed or purchased via the Internet, another source of valuable aviation information for professional instructors.

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.
