CHAPTER TITLE: Techniques of Flight Instruction
Below is a list of the figures (diagrams, charts, and pictures) from the AIH Chapter 9. They are listed in the order they are found in the Aviation Instructor's Handbook.
The learner prepares to execute a power-off stall maneuver in-flight that was taught in ground school.
A Level C simulator.
An example of a Level 6 Flight Training Device (FTD).
A level 4 FTD used for procedure training.
Reinforcing what the learner was taught on the ground is critical to learner knowledge.
The demonstration-performance method of teaching has four essential phases.
This comparison of steps in the teaching process, the demonstration-performance method, and the telling-and-doing technique highlights similarities as well as differences. The main difference in the telling-and-doing technique is the important transition, learner tells—instructor does, which occurs between the second and third step.
During this procedure, a visual check is recommended to see that the other person actually has the flight controls. When returning the controls to the instructor, the learner should follow the same procedure the instructor used when giving control to the learner. The learner should stay on the controls and keep flying the aircraft until the instructor says, “I have the flight controls.” There should never be any doubt about who is flying the aircraft.
