CHAPTER TITLE: Effective Communication
Below is a list of the figures (diagrams, charts, and pictures) from the AIH Chapter 4. They are listed in the order they are found in the Aviation Instructor's Handbook.
An aviation instructor communicates with her learner using model airplanes to ensure the learner’s understanding of the principles discussed.
The instructor realizes from the response of the learner that “stall” has been interpreted by the learner to have something to do with the engine quitting.

Misunderstandings stem primarily from four barriers to effective communication.
Overuse of abstract terms can interfere with effective communication.
Instructors can use a number of tools to become better at listening.
Learners can improve their listening skills by applying the steps to effective listening.
