POWERPOINT LESSON PLANS

FOR THE MODERN HELICOPTER CFI

ABOUT THE LESSON PLANS

In January 2015, I was a commercial helicopter pilot preparing for my CFI checkride, and like anyone who has experienced that stage of flight training, I was overwhelmed staring down the mountainous task of preparing my lesson plans. Some resources online had a CFI binder you could print off, some were just downright useless. All I wanted was content for the required lessons in PowerPoint form, to save me prep time before the checkride. 

I never found a resource like that. 

So after I passed my checkride, I made the decision to publish my lesson plan content, to give a hand to anyone starting the daunting task of creating lesson plans from scratch. This company is a result of that decision.

FAQ

Q: Who are these PowerPoints for?

A: These PowerPoints are for any pilot preparing for their CFI checkride. They are also for current CFI's looking to update their teaching material. 

Q: Are these lesson plans ready to go for the CFI checkride?

A: Not without review, and practice first. These PowerPoints are what I used to pass my CFI oral in 2015. However, I would highly recommend taking time to familiarize yourself with the content, edit them to your preference, and thoroughly practice teaching from them before you walk into a checkride. I try my best to keep these updated according to the newest regulations, however, there may be sections that may be out of date. 

Q: How are these PowerPoints used?

A: These are to be used by a CFI in a checkride, or ground school environment to teach new students. These are a teaching aid for a CFI, but do not replace the CFI. 

Q: I am new to flying, will these PowerPoints help me?

A: No. This product is for pilots preparing for their CFI checkride, and current CFI's only.

Q: Can I print off these lesson plans and use them as a CFI binder in a checkride?

A: Short answer: 

Yes, this is exactly what I did for my checkride.

Longer answer: 

DPE's can have different preferences, and I would highly recommend speaking to them, or others who have done their checkride with them, to be absolutely sure. PowerPoints are becoming more common in checkrides, and DPE's recognize this
