What is a CFI binder?

A CFI binder is a collection of lesson plans a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) has which includes all their knowledge, notes, references, and so forth. Their CFI binder is how they teach. A properly set up CFI binder will allow a CFI to quickly prepare for any given lesson my containing condensed information on the subject at hand. This will allow the CFI to rapidly revision the subject prior to teaching it, as well as use it during a lesson.

A properly structured CFI binder will contain lesson plans that work as outlines of the lessons taught. They can therefore be relied upon during a lesson, and they can be useful to read through by student pilots after the lesson has been taught.

Save time

Making a CFII binder from scratch takes months of work with hundreds of hours invested in finding source material, references, re-writing texts, formatting, locating appropriate illustrations. 

Don’t reinvent the wheel. Use your time where it matters: learning to teach and growing into the role of a helicopter CFII. Instead of spending months developing your own material, instead spend that time learning the material already out there to nail the checkride.

Every subject covered extensively

Each task in the Practical Test Standards has its very own dedicated lesson plan, which has been tailored to be taught by using space efficient formatting and illustrations. Each lesson plan comes with references to help make the checkride a breeze, or to guide your students in the right direction.

"I can't believe i didn't know about this thing until i was almost done with my rating, it would have been a huge help early on. Definitely worth it if you're serious about having top notch CFII lesson plans."
