The Flight Instructor’s Manual is an invaluable reference for flight instructor applicants and serves as an indispensable guide for both new and experienced instructors (CFIs).

This Sixth Edition is edited by William K. Kershner’s son, William C. Kershner. This manual is organised so that each chapter serves as a stand-alone reference for a particular phase of instruction, allowing each to be used as “how to instruct” guides on topics such as:

  • Fundamentals of flight instruction (FOI)
  • Presolo instruction
  • First solo to the private certificate
  • Advanced VFR instruction
  • Introduction to aerobatic instruction
  • Instrument instruction

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

Teaching tips and common student errors are provided for.
