Lesson Plans to Train Like You Fly: A Flight Instructor's Reference for Scenario-Based Trainingby Arlynn Mcmahon
Synopses & Reviews
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 McMahons first book, Train Like You Fly: A Flight Instructors 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 instructors 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 students 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.
The companion book for the first comprehensive guide to scenario-based instruction, this flight instructors teaching manual combines years of research with the latest studies and proven practices. The concrete guidelines and tips help flight instructors expand their practices to go beyond the FAA practical test standards, and numerous topics are covered such as systematic risk reduction, critical thinking, effective grading and evaluation, and tailoring programs to reach specific and individualized goals. Flight instructors will find effective, creative scenarios for IFR training, advanced training, instrument proficiency checks, and much more.
