I will be going through ATP's 14-day CFI course soon, and am anxious to get all the lesson plans done beforehand, as they require. They provide us with a set of lesson objectives, but we must create FAA-format lesson plans (objectives, schedule, equipment, instructor actions, student actions, etc) from these for the checkride. I have seen a book called the "Flight Instructors Lesson Plan Handbook" that has pre-made lesson plans, per the FAA spec, and referenced to the appropriate PTS or FAA publication. Has anyone used this book, and what do you think? Given limited prep time, I would rather spend time preparing to teach a lesson than spend all the time creating the lessons.
