This helps mitigate the high level of stress already involved when you're preparing for a check ride! Now I can better focus on cleaning up the areas I'm not as proficient in. Thank you!

Topnotch. Saves a ton of time buying this product and you can build off of it. Highly recommended.

Disapointing

Black and white powerpoints with no soul or visual appeal. There are many run on sentences that are unnecessary. Copy and pasted information from the aviation instructor's handbook. I honestly regret spending $120 on this pack. I wish there was a way to return/refund this product. You'll be 1000x better off watching Todd Shellnutt on youtube and making your own lesson plans.

Amar, firstly, thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We genuinely appreciate your feedback, and we're sorry to hear that our materials didn't quite take off for you.
We understand the importance of engaging content, and we apologize if the PowerPoint presentations lacked the visual flair you were hoping for. We'll definitely take your comments to heart as we continue to improve our products. The good news is that we just finished updating the CFII PowerPoints with more color, pictures, and engaging content, and the CFI and MEI are next in line for the updates. We’re also currently looking for a professional company to hire to take the presentations to the next level.
Regarding the run-on sentences, we'll be sure to tighten up our linguistic seatbelts in future updates. We want your learning and teaching experience to be as smooth as possible! The Aviation Instructor's Handbook is exactly what the FAA, DPE, and PTS are expecting you to reference on your checkride so we do focus on that content in the FOI lessons. If you weren’t using it, I’d recommend checking out the Condensed lessons as those remove a lot of the details and explanations.
It's disheartening to hear that you regret your purchase, but we'd like to turn things around for you. You’ll be happy to hear that we do offer refunds, our refund policy makes it clear that all it takes is a simple email. We want to ensure that you and everyone else is 1000x satisfied with their experience and wouldn’t want to hold anyone to a product that they wouldn’t find use in.
We’ll continue to improve the content based on your suggestions. Best of luck with your training and teaching. Thanks again!

Very helpful without having to reinvent the 'lesson plan' wheel

Love that you have a summarized powerpoint version as well as the main and condensed Word versions for customization. Very thorough as well. Thanks!

Outstanding Product!

The Backseat Pilot’s Whole Shebang of information provides an outstanding source of training materials for CFI’s, Learners, and current Pilots. The various Syllabi, Lesson Plans, and ACS Reviews are informative, accurate, and easy to understand. BSP has taken an immense amount of literature from various sources and consolidated them in an organized manner. Several formats including PDF’s, Word Docs, and Power Points are provided. All the materials are easy to understand, flexible, and updated on a regular basis. BSP’s support has been prompt and thoughtful when I have had questions.
This is an incredible product at a very reasonable price.
