How to be a “Great CFI”

Posted by Admin

The primary challenge to becoming an effective flight instructor is, ironically, to not fly and not talk on the radio (even though you desperately want to). Taking physical control in these two areas steals time and important learning opportunities from your student. Taking control also ruins their confidence and leads to frustration and demotivation (“I failed!”). Stated in a positive manner, your job and primary goal as CFI is to be an educator not pilot. Using only words and very occasional demonstrations, you must build skill and mastery in your student, incrementally turning over full control. Arms folded, stoic silence for three landings is my personal test for solo. One final landing after revealing the imminent solo (while signing the log) tests their nerves. No one said this was easy!
