Flight Training - October 2013 - 50

INSTRUCTOR REPORT»

every-two-years FAA minimum
knowledge demonstration that
instructors display to keep their
certificates active.
Instructor standardization isn’t
a new concept. It has existed in
larger, more complex aircraft; in
specialty training environments;
and for specialized flight operations for a while. It wasn’t until
recently that the concept was
applied more to GA aircraft used
in training and personal travel.
The CSIP program represents
one of the first direct efforts by a
manufacturer to ensure that the
instruction given to its owners and
operators complies with manufacturer recommended practices. The
goal is to keep accident rates down.
As aircraft instrumentation
becomes more customized to
specific airframes, and the avion-

ics become more integrated with
aircraft systems, it is harder for
instructors to transition between
airframes. Modern instructors must
not treat every aircraft as another
engine and airframe. Managing
the systems in a technologically
advanced aircraft is an integral part
of flying it safely—something that
can’t be taught if the instructor isn’t
familiar with its operation.
Instructors need to know
when to say, “Sorry, I’m not the
best instructor for that,” and
recommend one who is more
appropriately qualified. For pilots,
this means that the local instructor you have always used may not
be the best person to teach you if
he or she lacks experience with a
particular aircraft. Pilots seeking training should interview any
providers they are considering

and search for an instructor who
is completely familiar with—and
competent in—both the airframe
and avionics system.
Training from an instructor
who is experienced in a specific
airframe and avionics package will
be more efficient, develop stronger competencies, and—in many
cases—save valuable time (which
directly relates to training costs).
This is a model that students and
the instruction community should
look to, learn from, and begin to
incorporate similar approaches
into training for a wider variety of
aircraft. If we do this, we will take
a positive step toward enhancement of safety.
Jason Blair is a flight instructor and
designated pilot examiner in Grand Rapids,
Michigan.
