The Savvy Flight Instructor:
Secrets of the Successful CFI
by G.N. Brown

You've mastered the "Flight Training Handbook," and wrapped up one of the toughest orals of your flying career. You can now fly and talk at the same time, all from the right seat. You can write lesson plans, enter mysterious endorsements in student logbooks, and actually explain the finer points of a lazy eight. That's everything you'll ever need to know to be a flight instructor... No more questions, right?

Yeah, right! If you're a little apprehensive about where those students are going to come from, and how you are going to teach them, you're not alone. The Savvy CFI is designed to help out with all of those "other" flight instructing questions, like how to recruit new flight students. And once you've got 'em, how do you keep them flying? How can you optimize your pass rate on checkrides? What are the tricks for getting students to return for their advanced ratings?
Along with tips on how to attract and retain flight students, this book is about professionalism in flight instructing: how to advance your personal flying career by increasing the skills and satisfaction of your students, while promoting general aviation at the same time.

Covers all the essentials of turbine aircraft in one book. If you're preparing for a turbine aircraft interview, commuter groundschool, or a new jet job, "The Turbine Pilot's Flight Manual" is for you.

This easy-to-read book covers all major turboprop and jet systems, along with such topics as crew coordination (CRM), high-altitude weather, high speed aerodynamics, and preparing for ground and flight training. Also included are explanations of turbine aircraft terminology and procedures, including V-speeds, checklists and the like.

The included "Turbine Pilot's Flight Manual CD-ROM" uses over 60 narrated animations, color diagrams, and photographs to illustrate the inner workings of jet and turboprop aircraft. The straightforward "how-things-work" approach is ideal for anyone who has ever wondered about how turbine aircraft work, including pilots and aviation enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels.

Just a few of the many topics covered are jet and turboprop engines, flight controls, cockpit instrumentation, aircraft electrical, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems, APUs (auxiliary power units), pressurization and environmental systems, and fuel, fire protection, and deice/anti-ice systems. CD/ROM topics are keyed to book chapters and figures, so viewers can read about each system in the book, then see it in action on the CD/ROM.

"The Turbine Pilot's Flight Manual CD/ROM" is ideal for use both by individual users and as a classroom tool. It runs on both Mac (68040 and PowerPC, System 7 or higher) and PC (Windows 95 or Windows NT req'd).
