Automatic TRANSCRIPT

To another episode of Aviator Casts. My name is Chris Palmer from England attack it's great to have you here it's a beautiful ball sunny day kind of actually the sun's Kinda coming house raining earlier kind of weird time of year for weather here just took some pictures just a few minutes ago out on the lake beautiful still water flow planes beautiful colors behind I'm sure I'll put some of those those photos on instagram anyway today we're going to talk about a subject that I'm very passionate Russian about we're GONNA be talking about training now as a CFI I really really really have some deep opinions about this and I I definitely want to teach you guys what I think is required of CFI's to become the best possible see if I can be and of course we do that through training and through a process where we grow into that now I think that that this comes with a little bit more insight into who we are as people first first before we dive into this so have you always wanted to share aviation in this way and maybe share it with others maybe not even this way but maybe you've wanted the share aviation with others do you consider yourself a good teacher in your profession or in some other way do you feel like you can teach people well are you passionate about helping future aviators you want more people in aviation do you WanNa make a real difference in someone's career and you want to learn more about aviation at a faster your pace than ever before become the best pilot you could possibly that is going to be what we discussed today in a lot of that has to do with becoming a CFI hi now I'll just preface it with saying that for me this is the path that I've chosen at least so far aviation I this is basically where I'm going to be staying being unless something else kinda crazy happens but I wanna be a lifelong educator I wanNA keep giving back in this way because I've really enjoyed this I've really enjoyed being a CFI enjoyed the type of training that I've been able to do for people and actually see people go through and reach their aviation goals because of what I was able to share with them and I not only do that through fight training at my flight school here in Homer Alaska is where we're are located but I also do it through my website angle of attack dot com where I do online ground school so really enjoy that process and this is my career career this is what I've chosen a really enjoy it now because of that I'll give you this warning that if you aren't passionate about teaching and you aren't going to you the absolute best for your students and really take care of them like on a human level then please find another way to build your time or become a better pilot we don't need people that aren't passionate about teaching to become CFI's it actually just hurts the industry pushes people out because they you don't get the proper introduction to aviation they have too many roadblocks to aviation they feel like they're being held back mostly being held back from their instructors who for one reason or another just don't want to teach aren't good at teaching their heart isn't in it whatever it is do you ever want a favor and don't become a CFI okay. I know that sounds weird like totally opposite of not totally opposite what I'm talking about but I just want to preface it that outweigh with a warning that please become a cfo of your heart isn't going to be in it all right so this is a really interesting training process says because it's unlike anything else that you've done before it's unlike private instrument or commercial you are going to go into the process and really focus on people I think that's a big message I want to get across in this podcast podcast it's really actually all about the people you are teaching and becoming better at reading them at getting to know them at a helping them overcome their plateaus and things like that it's all about the people so a lot of people look to see and they say okay you know here's this person who who went through a ton of training and they know everything and I can go to them with any possible question I have but I'll tell you that that nine times out of ten when some people come to me with questions I typically don't know what they are I mean I I guess maybe unfair but if it's a difficult question they come to me with a difficult question question I don't necessarily know what they are I know where to find them and where to look and that is basically what makes an instructor good is where they look look for it in other words we aren't note all's we don't know everything but we know where to look so set that part aside on CFI's knowing every everything because the prefacing with that make sure that we aren't talking through this podcast this path to see a FI training success about how to cram all the knowledge you possibly can into your had that really this process is going to become more of something on the human I'm in level so being isn't about knowing everything being a CFI about mentoring being see see if is about teaching being chief is about the student at the end of the day that's all it is about everything to do throughout your training should speak to the ultimate goal of guiding someone through this process so no matter what you do no matter how you train your ultimate goal should it'd be how do I best help this person this individual that has this passion for aviation or this this desire to want an aviation career whatever it is how do I help them reach that goal regardless if you're an apart- one forty one school or a part sixty one school regardless on a a human level you need to be focused on the individual it's so so important so that is what this training is going to all be about now I wanNA talk about some the steps through the training that I think you should focus on so we're gonNA talk about how to prepare for that CFI training and I and of course it always starts with the knowledge right and I know I just kind of talked about the knowledge and how it isn't that big of a deal well you do have to go through and you do have to do certain tests of course Chris written tests you will do the F. A. Y. The fundamentals of instruction and you will do the flight instructor airplane tests now you can get your see if double I before you get your cfi a basically see if I aircraft so some people do it the other way before they do the CIA but regardless you're gonNA take a couple of written tests we're going to go through through and study for those you should be a professional at doing that now going through doing that and of course you can you can do that ground school with us we'll be doing a CFI ground school eventually I'm I'm pretty passionate about this topic so I wouldn't be surprised I if if if I training ends up being kind of one of the cornerstones of what we do angle of attack in the long term that that that really prepare CFI's PFI's to teach well into teach passionately and to be good mentors and be good people into a good to people all right so you go through this process you you are essentially learning how to teach that's what the F. A. Y. Fundamentals of instruction is trying to do I will say that the F. A. Y. in the book that comes for that from the FAA you can download it freely. I bought a hard copy just 'cause I buy hard copies of the basic documents from the FAA or text books you know it's very wordy it's it's very hard to read but the premise of the the of the concepts is correct and knowing learning those is very important on how you can help your students it it it's really actually at the end of the day the F. O. Y. is psychology teaching psychology for instructors as it applies to aviation so it's how to read people how to make sure they're comfortable how to help them get over plateaus it so it does a handful of things there but in Kinda very rigid let brain way in kind of how I see it
