ASA releases 5th edition of The Flight Instructor’s Manual

Now available is the 5th edition of The Flight Instructor’s Manual, edited by William C. Kershner, based on the original text by his father, William K. Kershner.

The book also features a comprehensive spin syllabus, material on multi-engine airplanes, instructing international students, teaching ground school, and setting up tests.

William C. Kershner was soloed by his father and holds Flight Instructor and Airline Transport Pilot certificates. He has flown 22 types of airplanes in his over 10,000 hours of flight time, ranging from Cessna 150s to Boeing 777s.
