privet vs commercial

make 2 different sets of lesson plans for a privet pilot and a commercial pilot
and i would like to see more on aerodynamics and aircraft systems . like taking about the consent speed prop . but otherwise these lessons are grate

Great, follows the PTS exactly

The DPE i went with is strictly a scenario based DPE, so I didn’t wanna spend too much time on creating my own lesson plans. I bought backseat pilot’s lesson plan. It worked for me as it follows the PTS exactly, and on the day of my checkride was a great source along with my FAA PHAK & FAA AFM. Make sure to re-write the speeds and etc for your type aircraft.
