ASA Lesson Plans provides lesson plans centered on the principles of scenario-based training (SBT)

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 McMahon’s first book, Train Like You Fly: A flight instructor's guide to scenario based training.

Lesson Plans is designed to work in complement with any syllabus and FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS). It explains how to teach each maneuver, making the flight instructor's 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.


Soft cover, 7-3/8'' x 10-7/8'', 192 pages, illustrations throughout.

Flight instructor extraordinaire and flight school owner/operator Arlynn McMahon has helped more than 1,000 students and CFIs fulfill their dreams of flight since 1984. She is a nationally recognized, professional aviation educator and leader in the field.
