Overview

The CFI-Flyer is an instructional model for CFI's and Ground Instructors. Made from a renewable resource, your wooden CFI-Flyer will provide years of service, giving you the ability to demonstrate control surface input to flight regime outcome. It has fully moveable control surfaces and can be assembled in a matter of minutes. Featuring two separate wind styles, it can be modelled as either a single or twin engine aircraft.

Reviews

If youre a flight instructor, you need an airplane model with moveable control surfaces. This is a very affordable model that was quickly shipped and carefully packed to protect from the vagaries of the delivery process. One of the best things was when I asked about getting a repair part, I received a response the same day that was exactly what I needed.

Excellent materials and good printing on the different surfaces. The wing attachment point is a tad too tight, and instructions came in the package to take a razor knife to that point to repair. Overall, this was bought to start introducing my five year old daughter to flight, and its the best thing out there. We will add some detail to make it more kid friendly, and the clean surfaces provide plenty of space to do just that.

Very nice tool for CFI’s. Instructions can be clearer with simple pictures on how and where to apply the aluminum foil tape. The high wing model could use a strut to strengthen the model

This was easy to assemble. The amount of foil tape was a bit skimpy for making both planes (single & twin engine), but this can be managed. The instructions were sufficient though barely.

The pre-punched cut outs are not very accurate. The hole that the fuselage should fit into the wing is too loose. I have one from many years ago that seems was a slightly different material and seemed to be better made

I wanted to love this, however the opening slot for the wings is too large, and the wings just flop around/fall off. It a bit ironic, since the instructions say that you may need to cut the opening larger to make it fit, but it is already too large.

I have ordered these in the past sometimes 7 or 8 at a time. Lower these models for instruction. I ordered to make sure I had a spare. I snapped the elevator pretty quickly but it all ready had had stress fracture put of the plastic. I went to the second model and used a razor blade to cut this one and I still snapped the fuselage. Since I ruined both models I tried to put the wings on the fuselage and the gap to press fir the wings is to large so they just fall off. Look Im fine using tape but the reason I bought two was to replace the ones I have that are a but worn out. I guess Ill go back to my original. From out of the box to into the trash. Worthless

Do not buy- I used to buy these models ten at a time five or so years ago. Bought two for a small bit of instruction and immediately snapped the elevator on the first one. So I went and got an exacto knife and cut the next model out. That said, I snapped the fuselage even after cutting the piece out. Even if Im incompetent the wings themselves dont grip the top of the fuselage. The gap for placing the wings on is too big so they wont even stay connected. $40 in the trash within five minutes... Dont buy this garbage.
