How Good Instructors Become Great Instructors
June 6, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
**Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, this seminar will only be available for online viewing. IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE WILL NOT BE PERMITTED.**
|Flight Instructors help students acquire knowledge, perfect flight skills, and learn good decision making. Quality flight instruction is an important part of building a safe community of pilots. But not many pilots know about the process of becoming a certificated flight instructor. Is it okay to fly with a very new instructor? Should I seek out someone with many years of experience? What makes the difference between a good CFI and a great CFI?
In this seminar, designed primarily to be viewed by flight instructors, we will examine the obligations of the role of flight instructor, and look for ways good instructors can push themselves to improve. Most importantly, we’ll show all the important ways that flight instruction differs from being a pilot, as outlined in the FAA’s Aviation Instructor’s Handbook.
If you are a new flight instructor who is passionate about effective instruction and looking for tips to improve your effectiveness, please join us. Commercial pilots who may be considering flight instruction as a career may also find value in this seminar. High-time flight instructors may already know much of these items, but are welcome to view the presentation as a refresher of what our profession aims toward.
