VIEW: Introduction

These air notes have been put together to help you provide in-flight instruction to Pilot candidates—from the Private License up to the Instructor Rating. Each air exercise is presented in lesson-plan format at a level of detail and in a physical format that’s useable in the airplane.

The content is based heavily on Transport Canada’s Flight Training Manual and Flight Instructor Guide (including supplements and with particular emphasis on Part II – The Ground and Air Instruction Syllabus). However, guidance based on the author’s extensive flight instruction background is also incorporated into each exercise.

Before using these notes, you should take some time to review the introductory material in this book, as well as other source material regarding the exercises you are teaching. You should also keep in mind that these notes do not contain all of the information you need to train pilots—they’re simply a checklist to help you stay on-track and cover the key points in an order that’s useful to a learner.

Further useful details can be found in a variety of sources, including:

  1. Transport Canada’s Flight Instructor Guide,
  2. Transport Canada’s Flight Training Manual,
  3. The FAA’s Airplane Flying Handbook,
  4. The FAA’s Aviation Instructor’s Handbook,
  5. Transport Canada’s various Flight Test Guides,
  6. The FAA’s various Practical Test Standards,
  7. Your Aircraft Flight Manual,
and other related documents, including non-government publications.

   About Instructional Air Notes

Instructional Air Notes for Pilot Training brings flight instructors a reference for conducting flight instruction. Provided in a kneeboard-friendly, multivolume format, the set provides detailed guidance for the flight instruction of the air exercises. All Transport Canada and FAA required exercises are covered for the full range of licences and ratings: Pre-Solo through Flight Instructor—with a separate volume for each license/rating.

Each exercise includes information on the aim, background knowledge, demonstration-performance instruction, and student errors. The guidance provided meets or exceeds Transport Canada’s requirements (as set out in the Flight Instructor Guide and applicable Flight Test Guides) and the FAA’s requirements (as set out in The Airplane Flying Handbook and applicable Practical Test Standards).
