Product Description

So you are looking for a kit you can use to train CFI-Sport applicants? This is the course, kit and toolbox that will make this easy, make you look professional, and be assured you are covering everything completely.

Let me help you reach this goal, with my one-of-a-kind course. I'll explain everything you need to know to teach a CFI-Sport applicant completely and effectively.

CFI-Sport applicants 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 teach the applicant to pass all three of these tests, it will give you the confidence you are comprehensive and cover all bases..

"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 both. This is a comprehensive study companion to CFI-Sport flight training, and it will make 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 and your applicant 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”. Your applicants can accomplish the integrated flight training/ground school with you, or he/she can do separate ground school option before they arrive for their flight training (which is the preferred method) to get the two written rests out of the way before they 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 the first flights which start the actual process of planning “flight instruction” right away. Second, you start training the applicant right away so there is no time lost and the applicant feels like they start making progress right away. Overall, you are jumping right in to developing your applicant with curriculum development exactly as they would after they get their 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, have your applicant be prepared for both FAA Knowledge Exams (written tests) and Practical Checkride Test (oral & flight test). Have your applicant pass all three tests or get your money back. One of the biggest problems in becoming a Flight Instructor is the applicant never doing actual flight instruction before they have to teach an actual student. Here we set both of 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 applicant will use for their lesson planning. This gets them up to speed 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 their own tests). It should be noted that you or your applicant can piece together training kits for students/applicants as you wish. By adding a few items, this CFI-Sport training kit can be recycled as a kit for a first student.
  • Save Hours of Flight Lessons - By having the relevant subject matter and developing lesson plans completed before each lesson, you'll go right into the flight lesson right away. This will allow you to do more flying per lesson and be much more efficient overall.
  • The Most Complete Course - With Flight Training, Ground School and FAA Test Prep, I take you beyond teaching the book answers. My course focuses on getting CFI applicants 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 the classroom that you can use for actual flying. With my course, they can learn some of the pre-flight briefing on their own schedule and at your own pace.
  • Integrated Written, Oral, and Flight Test Prep The powerful Prepware CD, books and videos I've provided let applicants study with three different forms of media. As you know, everybody learns differently and the three types of media provide plenty of options to learn from.

This course includes everything for your Sport Pilot CFI Certificate—Guaranteed!

The Sport Pilot CFI Course for Airplane is a proven system that provides the books, CDs and DVD videos media plus a flight computer and plotter/ruler. The only thinks not included are the local sectional map and Airport/Facility Guide.

The Sport Pilot CFI Training Course for Airplane kit´s components are developed and written by industry leader, Paul Hamilton, CFI, DPE (SPE, SPIE, PE). The training system uses a building block approach that optimizes training time to become a safe and confident flight instructor, while balancing their enthusiasm and passion for flight. With this comprehensive kit, you benefit from Paul's 35 years of training pilots and CFI’s.

Paul´s clear, simple, fun presentation means you will have the resources to train the applicant.

A complete home training curriculum

The self-guided home study course helps your applicant prepare before he comes in so you can focus mostly on flight training. The course ensures that FAA regulatory requirements are met. This is the perfect solution for you whether you teaching CFI-Sport applicants. The kit is used by the top schools and instructors.

Flight Training

Paul Hamilton proudly announces an all new scenario-based flight training course, which is the new FAA “best practices” for pilot training safety. It’s been designed to provide you with a scenario based training system to teach your applicants to embrace real world scenarios in aviation.

This course is for the pilot who is training in either a full-glass cockpit or with classical analog gauges.

You´ll benefit from Paul Hamilton´s unique learning system

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. The Training Syllabus and Workbook provides an easy way for CFI applicants to understand where they are in the training program with a logical progression of flight training and ground school.

Here's what you get in the Flight Training Course

  • Training kit that includes everything you need to train a CFI-Sport pilot Flight Instructor certificate
  • DVD Video/CD/Book-based system
  • Scenario-based flight training
  • Official FAA Handbooks

Ground School and FAA Knowledge Exams (FAA Written) Test Prep

Both the CFI knowledge test (written now computerized) and the Fundamentals of Instruction FOI (written now computerized) FAA Tests are on the CFI Prepware CD and in the CFI Test Prep book.

When applicants train with ASA's interactive computer-based test prep Prepware CD chances are they will score 90% or above just as hundreds of other pilots already have.

Learn FAA Test Questions Fast!

No other training is as focused—or as fast. No other Knowledge Test Prep ground school is as powerful or well-organized. Because ASA's Sport Pilot Knowledge Exam Prepware CD harnesses the power of the computer, they will be fully engaged—they'll learn faster and remember better. And when they're ready, they can get their FAA written test sign-off (endorsement) for both knowledge tests from an ASA CFI on line for free.

An option for knowledge test preparation is to work with the applicant at your facility if the applicant does not do the knowledge test preparation on their own. The Prepware CD can be used at your facility also and you can do the knowledge test endorsements as an option.

Always FAA current

The FAA frequently updates the required knowledge for each test. ASA continuously updates the Prepware CD and Test Prep book, ensuring you get the most current FAA questions available anywhere.

Here's what you get in the Ground School and FAA Knowledge Exam (FAA Written) Test Prep Course

  • CFI Knowledge Exam AND Fundamentals of Instruction (FOI) course on a convenient CD
  • Every FAA question and answer available for both CFI Knowledge Exam AND Fundamentals of Instruction (FOI)
  • Unlimited randomized practice tests
  • CFI Sign-off for both FAA Knowledge Tests on-line for free
  • Current FAA FAR/AIM

Practical (oral exam & flight test) Test Prep Checkride

On the oral questions portion of your Checkride, it is a pretty rigorous set of questions. The applicant first must demonstrate their knowledge of “ Fundamentals of Instruction”. Then “Technical Subject Areas” such as endorsements and writing a lesson plan. Up to this point they are answering questions. Next they must demonstrate your ability to teach. Completely different roles for the CFI applicant. Here they will be required to demonstrate instructor level aviation knowledge by teaching the Sport Pilot tasks such as regulations, aircraft systems, meteorology, airspace, flight planning, including the performance and weight & balance under actual conditions, the effects of the weather on flight and navigation/fight logs.

On the flight test portion of the Checkride they will be expected to demonstrate that you can teach a maneuver plus identify and correct mistakes made by the mock student/FAA DPE.

You'll find the Paul Hamilton Sport Pilot Checkride course has THE BOOK with all the questions and answers specifically for CFI-Sport. Additionally, they get the Official FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS) containing all the specific requirements and the exact standards for the Checkride. All these tools are invaluable preparation and resources to teach with. Following the CFI Applicant Kit for Airplane, they will be prepared and confident—guaranteed!

  • Know what the CFI checkride test procedure is. This will make sure your applicant is relaxed and prepared with no surprises during their Checkride.

This all inclusive course is typically the first item a guided or self-directed CFI-Sport applicant will purchase for a comprehensive "road map" outlining the other training materials required for a complete education in learning how to fly and instructing other in learning to fly.

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.


This is THE only course that will get you through flight lessons, ground school, preparing for your FAA knowledge exam and checkride to get your CFI certification. And many of the books and tools you will use throughout your instructor career.

This is THE only course that will get you through flight lessons, ground school, preparation for the FAA knowledge exam and checkride to getting a CFI-Sport certificate. And many of the books and tools will be use throughout a person's instructor career.

Use of this CFI-Sport training course ensures that the flight instructor has covered everything necessary, and in the most efficient manner, including flight proficiency and safety, aeronautical knowledge, operating procedures and regulations for instructing in a airplane LSA (light-sport aircraft).

Use of the training course helps the CFI-Sport applicant and instructor know the progress being made toward the applicant learning to become an instructor, at what stage of learning the applicant is at, and what the next step in the training program.

I've gotten great feedback from Instructor's who tell me this course has made their job as an instructor so much easier because they have all of the tools necessary to make certain they have covered everything required by the FAA for a thoroughly trained flight instructor. I've also gotten positive feedback from CFI-Sport applicants who really like that everything they need is all in one kit and the logical order the information is presented. They also appreciate knowing exactly where they're at in their training and ground school.
