Lesson Plans to Train Like You Fly presents lesson plans for flight instructors in the form of scenario-based maneuver briefings. A rich resource for active instructors, these lesson plans are also helpful to CFI applicants preparing their own materials. This book can be used as a companion book for flight instructors who are following the principles of scenario-based training taught in Arlynn McMahon’s first book, Train Like You Fly: A Flight Instructor’s Guide to Scenario-Based Training.
This book is designed to complement any syllabus and FAA testing standards (ACS/PTS) by explaining how to teach each maneuver, making the flight instructor’s favorite curriculum even more effective and enjoyable for clients. Each maneuver briefing features a series of drawings instructors can discuss with their clients or replicate in the classroom and an accompanying script to teach from, which includes a story or motivation on why and how the maneuver is applied in actual flight. Common errors are discussed in the form of keys to success, to positively inspire clients to become sound aviation citizens.
In addition to the lesson plans, the book includes templates, checklists, and student assignments to build proper flight preparation habits and help determine the student’s readiness to act as pilot-in-command. These tools are especially helpful to the flight instructor ahead of the major flight training milestones, such as first solo, solo cross-country, and the checkride.
“When the student understands meaning before tackling detail, they learn more quickly and more completely. Arlynn seamlessly combines the ‘why’ with the ‘how’ of learning maneuvers...[and] provides the instructor with more tools for their teaching bag-of-tricks.”
—From the Foreword, by Frank Ayers, Ed.D. Executive Vice President, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

I’m an unusual flt instr. I taught when I got back from RVN (1969) and later owned two flt schools in the ‘70’s and early ‘90’s. I even taught and the ran a big A&P school. I know good teaching and this new book does an excellent job of demonstrating in both form and in function how to approach the faa ‘new’ scenario based training. She teaches you as she would have you teach the students. I’m currently back in the teaching business because I promised a small group of very different people at our remote FL Keys airport to fly. This book is a God send! Thank you
