"In addition to demonstrating proficiency as a safe and effective pilot, instructors must be able to teach flight. Communicating effectively and facilitating student learning is at the heart of a flight instructor's job, and this requires a bit of psychology to understand how people learn. All flight (CFI) and ground instructors must take the FAA Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) Knowledge Exam. The Aviation Instructor's Handbook is the primary reference for this FOI Knowledge Exam and an important text to introduce the needed psychology relative to teaching. However, the basic, hands-on, practical application of the material can be lost in the theoretical coverage. As a result, instructors result to memorizing acronyms for testing, rather than learning how to be an effective instructor. The Flight Instructor's Survival Guide is a companion text for The Aviation Instructor's Handbook allowing instructors to be the proverbial fly-on-the-wall in watching this important information being used to make a safe pilot. Student pilot readers will gain perspective that they aren't the only ones experiencing a particular issue in their flight training. This book is necessary for anyone striving to be aviation-citizens with character, professionalism and ethical values. Delightful and full of wisdom and humor, Arlynn's book is a gift to all flight instructors who will inevitably share or recognize these fundamentals of instructing issues in their own cast of clients"--Provided by publisher.

Notes of a Seaplane Instructor is a distillation of all the tips, techniques and procedures of a veteran flyer and teacher, in an accessible and informative format. Author Burke Mees has an affinity for the "feel of the floats on the water" and how to communicate it in writing, as well as a sensible, professional approach which lends a truly "one-on-one" aspect to reading his book. All the seaplane maneuvers are covered, starting with preflight, proceeding through taxiing, takeoff, landing, and postflight procedures; also operating in various water conditions, stability of the aircraft on the water, step-taxi and -turn, and much more. Many illustrations, taken from and inspired by the author's own original flight instruction notebook sketches, help to further explain the concepts. In this new second edition, Burke provides even more notes on technique and performance particular to the world of floatplanes, with a special emphasis on safety and the best kind of pilot decision-making processes that keep seaplanes flying. The Second Edition also features an added chapter on multi-engine seaplane flying, and an appendix with notes on "pumping the floats" and "ropes and splicing." What is it like to fly single-engine float planes? How do pilots develop and then hone their water-flying skills? What techniques apply to both landplanes and seaplanes, and which ones belong in only one realm? The answers to these questions comprise a unique approach to seaplane flying, in a book that reveals what floatplane mastery is really all about. Notes of a Seaplane Instructor offers insights to all pilots, from already-rated seaplane pilots to those looking to experience the benefits and pleasures of seaplane flying for the first time.
