Pros: Excellent text for the aspiring or current CFI. The book describes how to be an effective flight instructor, not just how to pass the CFI checkride. Full of great information. Definitely a must-read. A great resource for any current or soon-to-be CFIs.

Does this book contain the private pilot maneuvers?
A shopper on Sep 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The book appears to be a reprint of William Kerstner's seasoned book including maneuvers. Advanced Ground Reference Maneuvers are in Chapter 19, Chapter 20 has advanced altitude maneuvers including chandelles and lazy eights and chapter 21 goes into spins. While The Flight Instructor's Manual has adequate printed instructions and graphics you will be able to supplement with Google searches for YouTube videos and demonstrations and lessons from an experienced flight instructor and real aircraft. The Flight Instructors's Manual is a useful tool for understanding the finer points of what is happening and instructing maneuvers.
