Great resource for aspiring CFI’s and CFI-I as well as Commercial and Multi-engine students! Would definitely recommend!
Great product and totally worth the money. The lesson plans are great and very thorough! Everything is to ACS/PTS standards but have way more info for good lesson planning.
The Backseat Pilot Lesson plans were a great investment. Purchasing them allowed me focus on reviewing the material and simply customizing it for my liking rather than spending tons of time formatting them from scratch. Not only that, but I got a great deal on the Whole Shebang which sets me up to complete all three instructor certificates & ratings. It is also great to have access to any updates that are released in the future.
Use this not only for Lessons, but the Information is in depth enough to study from as well. Thanks BSP
This was the best $99 I ever spent. I love having all the information on just a couple documents with easy access to everything through the table of contents. The VFR/IFR card sent in the mail is very handy as well with relevant information. I am very pleased. I also like that this comes with lifetime updates for free!
These lesson plans are super detailed and I couldn’t really find any deficient areas. Only problem I found was that the NTAP was discontinued but that’s super minor, definitely recommend.
Overall, I'm really happy with the CFI Lesson Plans. There is only one item so far that (for me, at least) could be improved:
Technical Subject Areas II.C and II.D seem disorganized and out-of-sequence with the PHAK textbook. Many elements of II.D should come before II.C. Instead of II.D, being referred to as Additional Info, I would prefer to see these two lessons reorganized and broken up into part 1 and part 2. Additionally, many of the graphics are outdated and have since been updated in the FAA's PHAK.
These lesson plans were a lifesaver during my CFI Check ride. You will have to supplement some information, which is to be expected. The high altitude in particular required a good deal of added information, but overall well worth the saved time.
I purchased the CFI lesson plans, and they served me well, so I decided to purchase the II ones. They are very thorough and have plenty of pictures and references. These have saved me soooooo much time!! Definitely worth every penny!
Really detailed lesson plans. Makes me feel bad about the ones I created myself. They helped me refine my lessons so I wouldn't miss anything. Thanks
The Whole Shebang - All CFI & ACS Lessons & The BSP: IFR/VFR Reference Card
Not very satisfied with the lesson plans, I created my own lesson plans then purchased these as a primary yet I kept finding out that my written lesson plans were more accurate when it came to information. I will not be purchasing the MEI lesson plans from you guys when the time comes. Definitely a waste of 39.00
The BSP: IFR/VFR - Reference Card
I can't complain, had the original one, and I emailed about a couple of things, and I'm glad to see a new one has come out.
I thought I was downloading actual lesson plans as I am working on my CFI initial and looking for lesson plans. I don't find these to be what I would call lesson plans but rather knowledge items on each ACS area.
Helpful for guiding the specifics of the PTS
Thorough, but mostly just reorganized material available elsewhere.
It's a great tool to help build my own lesson plans
I love these lesson plans! Why recreate your own when they are right here! They are a great study tool, and have helped me adequately prepare for my CFI Checkride!
I was an Instructor in the military. I took the MCI to obtain my CFII/MEI. I have zero experience instructing in the civilian world, and this product covers every FAA manual, CFR and Advisory Circular. Still reading through it, but with a few minor grammatical errors and just a couple of incorrect CFR references (we're only human!), I love this product. Definitely recommend!
Ordered to prepare for.my com. And cfis great content so far teally appreciate the products.
I recently purchased the lesson plans and they are amazing. They are very thorough and detailed. It really allows me to save time and add/delete what I need to customize them for my needs. Thank you for the great product!!
I used your CFI Lesson Plans while preparing for my CFI check ride and am now using them with my students. I recently purchased your CFII lesson plans as I prepare for my next check ride.
I’ve seen feedback in other reviews regarding spelling errors, desire for more detailed information, etc., but did not find this to be an issue. For me, the lesson plans provided structure and sufficient detail, which I built upon as I made them my own with additional content.
Your customer support is outstanding and I appreciated your prompt response to my inquiries.
Some aspects are a little lacking. Specifically runway incursions are not defined up front in the cfi lesson plan. Also there are spelling and grammar errors.
They are derived from the PTS, but expand further into the PHAK, FAR AIM etc. Presented in a format that easy to tailor to your own needs.
