Follow along in The Flight Instructor's Survival Guide as author Arlynn McMahon lifts the Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) principles from the classroom and brings them into the cockpit. Her forty-four stories demonstrate the FOI principles in flight and offer practical strategies for dealing with both common and unexpected situations--- all with wisdom, grace, and humor.
In this companion to the FAA
Aviation Instructor's Handbook (FAA-H-8083-9), McMahon uses memorable parables and provides sage advice to illustrate FOI principles at work with real clients in real-life situations. Psychology, human factors, professionalism, effective communication, customer service, and ethics are evident in her teaching style with the people she's interacted with over decades in the business of flight training.
Through artful storytelling, McMahon shows how a successful instructor is sometimes a psychologist, other times a detective, and always a gatekeeper enforcing rules and cultivating the behaviors required to be a responsible aviation citizen.
An ideal companion to classes preparing Flight Instructor (CFI) applicants!
