The Flight Instructor’s Manual, 5th edition. Second favorite of William K Kershner (after the Student Pilot’s Flight Manual), this book is designed for both the pilot getting the CFI certificate and the active instructor. Detailed insight on teaching and the duties and responsibilities of a CFI are discussed. This book is written in defined sections the instructor can refer to as he or she takes the student through the many phases of learning. These areas include first flight, second flight, high work, shooting takeoffs and landings, to name just a few of the private pilot items. Sections on advanced instruction, including spins and introductory aerobatics (each with a syllabus), are included.
