Product Description

Have you always dreamed of the adventure and freedom that comes from being a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI)? This is the course that will make your dreams a reality.

No matter what your dreams are as a Flight Instructor, I am here to help you discover what a rewarding experience teaching in an Airplane can be. Let me help you reach this goal, with my one-of-a-kind course. I'll show you how fun and rewarding teaching can be, and explain everything you need to know to teach in an Airplane Light-Sport Aircraft, LSA.

To earn your rating, you must pass three FAA tests: the knowledge (written now computerized) CFI test, the Fundamentals of Instruction (FOI) (written now computerized) knowledge test, and a practical exam (Checkride) that includes an oral interview and a flight test with an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE). My CFI - Sport Applicant Course will not only help you pass all three of these tests, it will give you the real world knowledge you need after you earn your flight instructor rating to provide actual flight instruction in airplanes.

"I operate my own flight school, Sport Aviation Center, so I know your time and money are precious. That's why my course was developed to save you both. This is a comprehensive home study companion to your flight training, and it will make your lessons more efficient, more fun and more complete." - Paul Hamilton, CFI, DPE (SPE, SPIE, PE)

The Training System follows a logically organized "Training Syllabus and Workbook" to guide you through all the training materials. There is a one-of-a-kind Section 3 specifically for CFI training. It is similar to the PILOT training in Section 2 of the” Training Syllabus and Workbook”. You can accomplish the integrated flight training/ground school with the CFI who is training you, or you can do separate ground school option before your flight training (which is the preferred method) to get your two written rests out of the way before you start flight training. It is designed to be flexible for all types of learning scenarios.

Additionally, the course is designed to do two things. First you start developing Lesson plans for your first flights which start the actual process of planning “flight instruction” right away. Second, you start training the CFI (mock student) with YOUR lesson plans right away so there is no time lost in your goal. Overall, you are jumping right in to developing your curriculum and training with your lesson plans exactly as you would after you get your CFI Certificate and start training REAL students..

Why my course is better

  • First, the only CFI Sport “flight training” AND “ground school” course available If you have done your research, you have discovered there is no other integrated Flight Training and Ground School course available. Most other courses really only have ground school with a program limited to getting through the two knowledge tests.
  • Flight Training...Ground School...Test Prep...All in One Course! Learn how to teach safely, be prepared for both FAA Knowledge Exams (written tests) and Practical Checkride Test (oral & flight test). Pass all three tests or get your money back. One of the biggest problem in becoming a Flight Instructor is never doing actual flight instruction before you have to teach an actual student. Here we set you up so you can get going right away.
  • Real World Tools You Can Use - We provide all the DVD videos and books that your student will use for your lesson planning. This gets you up to speed with your future students and their first training kit (except the Sport Pilot Prepware for the student Sport Pilot Knowledge Test – in this kit you get the CFI version for your own tests). It should be noted that you can piece together training kits for your students as you wish. By adding a few items, this CFI-Sport training kit can be recycled as a kit for your first student.
  • Save Hours of Flight Lessons - By reviewing the relevant subject matter and developing lesson plans on your own before each lesson, you'll go to your next flight lesson prepared. This will make your time with your instructor much more efficient, saving you time and money.
  • The Most Complete Course - With Flight Training, Ground School and FAA Test Prep, I take you beyond the book answers. My course focuses on getting you experience as a flight instructor and really being able to teach people to fly...not just memorizing test questions.
  • A Personalized Training Experience - Minimize your time in a classroom and/or with your instructor. With my course, you can learn on your own schedule and at your own pace. It's easy to review segments multiple times or even skip ahead.
  • Integrated Written, Oral, and Flight Test Prep The powerful Prepware CD, books and videos I've provided let you study with three different forms of media.

Many folks ask me what makes my courses different and why my students tend to learn to fly so easily and score so highly on their tests. The short answer is that I take complex information, and make it clear, simple, easy and fun to learn.

Most important, though, I developed a combination of books, CD with a video/DVD-based knowledge delivery system that puts students in the pilot´s seat.

You could purchase all of these items individually as you progress through your grounds school, flight training, FAA exams and checkride, but, most CFI-Sport applicants have found it much easier and more cost effective to purchase the complete course so they have the study materials at their fingertips when they need them.

They also appreciate knowing exactly where they're at in their training and ground school.

  1. Looks good so far. I've just getting starting with it 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2020

    I've gone thru all the tapes but the "Instructor 2020 Prepare" tape. That will be the last one I'll go thru. From what I see of the material so far it looks like I'll be learning a lot of new stuff but it will be fun.

  2. Great material 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2020

    The kit for the sport pilot instructor is very good. I passed the FOI test with a 96%. I am a little disappointed with the "2020 test prep" video, I was expecting more than just sample test questions. I really thought it would/should be more like a home classroom with an instructor doing lectures, and showing how to use the charts and figures to get the answers they're looking for. But overall, it's a good package.

  3. Complete and Thorough 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2014

    This Kit includes all the material you need to reinforce what you know and to educate you in what you don't, I was most impressed and surprised on how little I knew about weather until I watch the weather to fly DVD. It might seem overwhelming at first but if you follow the syllabus it will pin point you to the material you need to study, Watching the DVDs first helps a lot to get acquainted with the material but the laid back yet professional editing will get you where you need to go, the software used for flight simulation during demonstration in the DVDs could be updated but it serves its purpose, fort the prices I have researched the quality of the training and the amount of information you get is totally worth it, other programs only give you one or two part of the necessary materials to pass your CFI-Sport Checkride, here you get it all guaranteed!!!

    NOTE: You also get great service if there are any problems with the kit they will take care of you, I had a very pleasant and professional experience, GOOD LUCK!
