"In addition to demonstrating proficiency as a safe and effective pilot, instructors must be able to teach flight. Communicating effectively and facilitating student learning is at the heart of a flight instructor's job, and this requires a bit of psychology to understand how people learn. All flight (CFI) and ground instructors must take the FAA Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) Knowledge Exam. The Aviation Instructor's Handbook is the primary reference for this FOI Knowledge Exam and an important text to introduce the needed psychology relative to teaching. However, the basic, hands-on, practical application of the material can be lost in the theoretical coverage. As a result, instructors result to memorizing acronyms for testing, rather than learning how to be an effective instructor. The Flight Instructor's Survival Guide is a companion text for The Aviation Instructor's Handbook allowing instructors to be the proverbial fly-on-the-wall in watching this important information being used to make a safe pilot. Student pilot readers will gain perspective that they aren't the only ones experiencing a particular issue in their flight training. This book is necessary for anyone striving to be aviation-citizens with character, professionalism and ethical values. Delightful and full of wisdom and humor, Arlynn's book is a gift to all flight instructors who will inevitably share or recognize these fundamentals of instructing issues in their own cast of clients"--Provided by publisher.
