A new ASA book, which is debuting at AirVenture this week, is the follow-up text and companion to “Train Like You Fly,” and the latest title written by Arlynn McMahon, 2009 National Flight Instructor of the Year and recipient of the 2009 NATA Excellence in Pilot Training Award.
Lesson Plans to Train Like You Fly presents lesson plans for flight instructors in the form of “maneuver briefings.” It complements any syllabus, with illustrations throughout so instructors know exactly what to draw and what to say to teach every flight maneuver covered in the Private and Commercial training programs, according to ASA officials. Common errors are discussed in the form of keys to success, and the Practical Test Standard minimum tolerances are included for reference. Each maneuver briefing concludes with a fill-in-the-blanks template to be used for the student’s airplane and location.
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.
