This Seventh Edition for CFI applicants includes “Fundamentals of Instruction” questions covering the subjects from the FAA’s Aviation Instructor’s Handbook (FAA-H-8083-9A). The latest Practical Test Standards are accounted for, including “steep spirals” and “180-degree power-off approach” flight maneuvers. References are included with each explanation for the reader to research further as necessary. This edition also includes a chapter on “Scenario-Based Training” by Arlynn McMahon (author of Train Like You Fly and Lesson Plans, recipient of the 2009 Flight Instructor of the Year Award, and 2010 NATA Award for Excellence in Pilot Training).

 

Instructors rate the Oral Exam Guide Series as excellent preparation for students. The books in this series are useful for aircraft transitions and as general refresher material. 

 

Also by Michael Hayes: Private Oral Exam Guide, Instrument Oral Exam Guide, Commercial Oral Exam Guide, Airline Transport Pilot Oral Exam Guide, Multi-Engine Oral Exam Guide.

Pros: This product is a compact way to review for any CFI oral exam. It was a great review of FOI topics. It is intended for initial CFI ratings. It puts all the necessary info in a compact place and is both a good study review as well as a self test method to find areas the applicant should consider brushing up on. It would also be a great study guide/self test for the getting the CFI renewed. Cons: It doesn't have a whole lot of information about other ratings like the CFII or CFIME. However, if you combine this book with the appendix in the Instrument rating oral study guide, then pretty much all the topics are covered. Also, an index would have been very helpful. I found the book invaluable. It was a great review. However, it, like the FOI and the other 8083 FAA texts, it is more reference material rather than how to correlate the material together. It's great for the oral exam, but it will not make you great instructor. (e.g. Just because someone knows all the parts to a bicycle doesn't mean they know how to ride it).

Pros: Extremely comprehensive Cons: none This book is so good that it is used by my local FSDO when they test a CFI applicant. My instructor warned me that I needed this book because that's what the examiner will have....he wasn't kidding! It's a long (and sometimes boring) read but it will make you very prepared for your CFI oral.

Pros: This product is a fairly good review for the CFI practical exam. It also is a good reference after the exam for practical application and review of CFI actions and responsibilities. It is a great addition to any CFI recertification study plan. Cons: A few more supporting references would be helpful.
