being taught to your goals, thereby leveraging
your motivation to be a pilot.
You will be a better learner when you
understand what the course of training
requires in terms of preparation, time,
and dedication. Ask your CFI to explain
the relationship between curriculum, syllabus,
and individual lesson plans, so that
you have awareness of where you are and
where you will be, subsequently, as you
move from fledgling to certificate pilot.
Know what you will be addressing with

INSTRUCTION.
you will achieve from learning to fly and
the greater vistas open for exploration.
Caution: Be wary of the CFI who is more
interested in putting time in his or her
logbook at your expense than being a professional
educator teaching you to fly.
Discuss your learning traits with
each lesson before you go aloft. While
it may seem arrogant to do so, insist on
discussing each lesson plan with your CFI
prior to preflight. Flying requires planning;
learning to fly requires lesson plans.
While not inherently difficult, learning
to fly also requires focus. You need to
" put skin in the game " since even the best
CFI can't learn for you. The student who
enters training knowing what to expect
and how effort will be rewarded is more
likely to have a satisfactory experience.
Engaging your CFI in conversation
prior to starting flight lessons will expand
your training horizon and stimulate
your motivation. Becoming an aviator is
a fulfilling experience that provides an
opportunity for personal accomplishment
and self-fulfillment. You want your
CFI to be empathetic to those holistic
rewards of flight-the self-awareness that
your CFI. No two students are identical,
and everyone has their preferred ways
of learning. Some students learn best
by reading material from manuals; they
are called " visual " learners. Others are
called " auditory " learners because they
are particularly adept at retaining what
they hear. " Kinesthetic " learners benefit
greatly by doing things. Students should
discuss their preferences with their
instructor before launching a program of
flight training to identify learning style-
an area far too important to be discovered
by trial and error.
Teaching style is also critical. CFIs
need to adopt to the delivery methods
that best influence the student. Some
students respond to the firm hand of a
disciplinarian who points out each error
and deviation from acceptable standards;
others are intimidated by such techniques.
Students should be forthright
with their CFI. Without a candid, open
discussion of styles that are effective,
valuable teaching time and student dollars
will be lost, frustrations will increase,
and flight training will be unsatisfactory.
Students can help their CFIs be
effective teachers by engaging them in
sufficient dialogue to find compatible
learning and teaching styles, shared objectives
and realistic expectations for success.
A candid discussion with your assigned
CFI will go a long way toward ensuring
favorable student/instructor dynamics. FT
