Product Description

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). This CFI - Sport Applicant Test Prep Course is a concentrated course for the three FAA tests. It is not the complete flight training that you must accomplish with an instructor, it is focused on passing the three FAA tests.

If you want the complete CFI applicant course which includes the flight training, training syllabus and more depth CFI study materials, you need the “CFI-Sport Applicant Course” not just this Test Prep Kit.

”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 not a weekend "cram course." It is a comprehensive home study program that will make preparing for your FAA exams more efficient, more fun and more complete." - Paul Hamilton, CFI, DPE

Paul's Recommendation

For all pilots preparing for FAA CFI knowledge exam and the fundimentals of instruction (FOI) exam to obtain a certified flight instructor rating.


This is a comprehensive program to pass both of the required FAA flight instructor knowledge tests: the Fundamentals of Instruction knowledge test and the CFI knowledge test.


It is best to watch this before you start, or just as you start, flight training so you can learn the practical aspects of teaching faster and more efficiently. If you start your CFI flight training with this program, you will save time and money when taking the actual flight and ground training. If you have already started your CFI flight training, this will help you put together the concepts from another perspective plus make sure you “fly through” the FAA knowledge tests the first time.

It is fine if you want to do your ground school and pass the FAA knowledge test even before you start your CFI flight training. Overall, the more you learn on the ground, the more efficient your flight instructor training will be.


Since this is a DVD video, you can watch it on your computer or TV / DVD player at home or office.


This also has the practice tests with all of the available FAA questions and answers for both the required FAA knowledge tests with an additional study guide specifically to pass the FAA knowledge tests. Here you practice the tests until you consistantly score a 90% on the practice tests...you're ready to go.

The prepware also provides the required FAA flight instructor endorsement to take the knowledge tests when you e-mail in two practice test scores of 80% or better. Do not worry, you can take as many practice tests as you want no problem, you pick the two tests you want to e-mail in for each of the two knowledge tests and get your CFI endorsement to take the official FAA knowledge tests.
