Introduction

  1. What is a trainer?
  2. The Concise Oxford Dictionary definition of the word train is: "Bring to desired state or standard of efficiency by instruction and practice".
  3. Flight instructors are trainers. If you are a flight instructor, your aim is to give students good instruction and sufficient practise so that they can fly aircraft proficiently and safely.
  4. Part one of this guide is designed to describe some basic instructional techniques that apply to:
    1. ground school training;
    2. preparatory ground instruction;
    3. pre-flight briefing;
    4. in-flight instruction; and
    5. post-flight briefing (debriefing).
  5. By using these techniques you will make learning easier for your students as you help them meet the required flight test standards.
