Certified Flight Instructor Resources by Derek W Beck


Lonely Arrow


This is my collection of work that I used when preparing for the Certificated Flight Instructor (CFI) rating. After completing this massive amount of work, I thought it would be useful to share it with others. It seemed unfortunate to put together all of these documents and then keep them to myself. While there are other sources for variations of this material, I have strived to make a clear site with free information. (There are some sources that charge you for what I put here freely!)

This website is targeted to other CFI's and CFI candidates. While some of the educational presentations are useful to students, students should sit with their instructor and discuss anything they find on this site. This is necessary to insure a thorough understanding of the elements of each subject.

As you peruse the site, you may notice that most of the work is written specific to single-engine airplanes, and in particular, the C-172RG. I have tried to be generic whenever suitable, and in fact designed all of the documents with this in mind, knowing I would post them here when I was done. Nevertheless, there are several documents that are quite specific to the C-172RG.

Of course, the content here is intended for reference only and must not be relied upon for actual flight. Consult the FAA-approved flight manual for your aircraft as well as FAA handbooks.
