August / September Lesson Updates

November 07, 2020

A lot of changes to the lesson plans over August and September and we're just getting around to posting them. Those of you with access to the lessons received emails letting you know the new lesson plans were added to your account back in August and September. 

Since these updates we've been hard at work at a new addition / extension to the website that we think could be a big addition to the pilot community! We're getting close to bringing it online and getting your input but need to spend a little more time fine tuning with input from flight schools and users. You'll see a limited, "beta" version to start in the coming month or so. 

As for the lessons, we were hard at work. Here are the August and September updates:

CFI: 

  • Section I has been updated to the new 2020 Aviation Instructor's Handbook 
  • Generic Systems lesson added to Section III
  • Reorganized, and added pictures and links to all lessons in Sections I, II, III, V, VI, XII, XIII, and XIV

We took the time to dig through the new release of the Aviation Instructor's Handbook (8083b) and make sure your CFI lessons are up to date. All lessons in Section I now reflect the updated information. 

Look for a new generic systems lesson to accompany our growing number of aircraft system lessons in Section III. Think of it as a How Things Work lesson, covering the operation of just about anything found on an airplane - flight controls, flaps, engines, magnetos, oil systems, propellers, and way more.

We also continued (and completed!) our run through of every lesson in the CFI eBook. Over the last 6 months or so we've reorganized and refreshed every lesson in the book! We'll be moving to the CFII eBook next. You can also expect to see additional aircraft systems lesson plans added.

MEI: 

The MEI updates were almost identical to the CFI other than one differing section number. You'll see the Section I Aviation Instructor's Handbook updates, the new generic systems lesson plan in Section III, as well as updates and refreshes to all lessons in Sections I, II, III, V, VI, XII, XIII, and XV. As mentioned above, expect to see additional aircraft systems lesson plans added as well!

 

 

We're always looking for ways to make the lessons better and more useful to you! Don't hesitate to send an email to info@thebackseatpilot.com with any suggestions.
