Earning a flight instructor certificate (CFI) is extremely challenging and involves an immense amount of training, studying, preparation, and dedication. With the national pass rate for first-time flight instructor applicants hovering around 20%, the Practical Guide to the CFI Checkride provides thorough preparation to flight instructor applicants, and significantly increases their chances of success on the CFI checkride.
Written in "plain language," this guide clarifies what applicants must know and demonstrate during the oral portion of the FAA Practical Exam, eliminating any surprise about examiner expectations. Incorporated with the specific task elements from the Practical Test Standards, the concise information fills the gap between textbook learning and practical application, resulting in better-prepared applicants.
Even the most dedicated flight instructor applicant can become overwhelmed with the sheer volume of information that must be mastered. This book will help them prioritize this information, interpreting the guidance materials in ways they can understand, remember, and quickly reference. The CFI Practical Test Standards (Airplane, Single-Engine) are included as an Appendix, and space is provided to take notes.
