Having written binders of plans I found these plans very clear and easy to bring out key knowledge and skills required by the FAA ACS
Very nicely made with key information on both VFR and IFR. Will be my go to card in the cockpit. Great customer service as well, thank you Nathan!!
Very thorough, detailed lesson plans. I've found I also need a high-level outline that is much shorter and easier to use while actually giving the lesson, but these are relatively easy to create yourself.
Very comprehensive and thorough! I love them!
The lesson plans are a great starting point to build from, everything is in one place. The notes sections are the greatest asset! The format of the plan as a whole is clean and easy to use.
Simplicity and perfection at it's finest - this is a must have. 10/10
I was having a hard time printing the lesson plan so I can use them.
Hi Jesus, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know where you're having problems. The lessons are Word and PDF documents so printing them should be pretty straightforward. We'll figure out the issue and help you get them printed.
Easy to use and helpful for preparing lesson plans!
I don’t like to reinvent the wheel so this was perfect for me. I love you get it in word and PDF! The whole shebang is the only way to go in my opinion. Everything I could ever need in one bundle. And free updates for life (however long that may be)!!
The Whole Shebang - All CFI Lessons Plans, ACS Reviews & The BSP: IFR/VFR Reference Card
I was in the process of making all my CFI lesson plans and at after about 5-6 hours and getting not even a quarter done, I decided to look for CFI lesson plans online. I stumbled across The Backseat Pilot and it looked good and so I bought it for a reasonable price and it exceeded my expectations. I would recommend The Backseat Pilot to anyone!
I bought The Whole Shebang because I plan to get my CFI, CFII, and MEI. The content of the lesson plans follows the ACS/PTS in detail and provides a great lesson plan on its own but also provides a fantastic baseline if you want to edit it to personalize it.
Thanks to Nate and his team for making the ground prep so much easier for instructor candidates! Keep up the great work!
Any CFI or aspiring CFI will benefit from this outstanding work.
Excellent layout and well detailed.
Well organized, very helpful in creating future lesson plans.
I have had several people suggest Backseat Pilot and I liked the fact that I could see quite a bit online as samples before purchasing. It has so much great content and I can taylor to my own style. Customer service is great and quick as well.
CFI Lesson Plans
CFI Lesson Pack - All CFI Lesson Plans (CFI, CFII, MEI)
Very good product for the cost
Has all the information you’ll ever need. Goes line for line straight out of the PTS.
The most inclusive lesson plans one can get. Some lessons have too much detail but they are very easy to follow.
I would recommend this product. You may need to add some things to the lesson plans to suit your individual style, but this provides an excellent place to start and save s a great deal of time.
Probably one of the most comprehensive and articulate, straightforward lesson plan sets out there. I’ve tried to make my own, and I’ve done “ok” at it, but this helped fill in any cracks in my plans. To the point where I switched over entirely. Great job, guys.
You guys are lifesavers! Fly safe!
