Beginning or part-time flight instructors (CFIs) often seek guidance on what to expect as a student pilot progresses through the flight training process. In
, author LeRoy Cook lends his half-century of experience as a guide to motivate, inspire, and mentor new instructors.
Though airplane and cockpit technology has changed over time, the basics of flying remain and must be mastered all the same. To make the process less daunting for both student and instructor, Cook organizes training into four phases and advises how to work through each one: solo flight; dual and solo cross-country; passing the knowledge exam; and passing the checkride. Flight instructors following his steps will find a mentor in LeRoy Cook, while taking their students from first flight through certification.
