This is the PDF format (Adobe Acrobat) version of this syllabus.

This syllabus includes 29 dual hours in a complex airplane, during which you will usually occupy the right seat, including a daytime, 2-hour, 100 NM cross-country flight and a nighttime, 2-hour, 100 NM cross-country flight. You are usually PIC during training flights, logging PIC time to the extent possible. No solo time is included. If you choose to solo, be aware that some airplanes require the PIC to occupy the left seat. This may affect your ability to fly from the right seat when solo. It may also restrict your ability to be PIC during training. Your instructor will help you to determine your status of PIC before each flight.

The FAA does not allow a “combined checkride.” Two separate practical exams are planned in this syllabus: a commercial and a flight instructor. With the consent of the Designated Pilot Examiner, in an airplane where the manufacturer does not require the PIC to occupy the left seat, your commercial practical exam may be conducted with you flying from the right seat. Your instructor will communicate with the examiner in advance, so you’ll not have any last minute surprises.

There are no block quizzes. The FAA Knowledge Exams demonstrate your knowledge. There are no progress checks. Your commercial practical test is a good indication of training that may be necessary as you continue toward the flight instructor practical test.

"This course is an excellent method to condense training time and provide a greater practical experience for the prospective flight instructor."

"Not only is this book innovative and extremely interesting it's fun-filled with a great writing style. I will defiantly recommend it to my clients and students. This should be a must read for all progressive pilots. I'm looking forward to the next book! I'd love to meet this author in person someday."

"I thoroughly enjoyed reviewing this and find it very refreshing new approach to a previously tedious subject matter."

"Practicality meets functionality meets entertainment. As much as possible for a training syllabus, this book brings a newly innovative approach to training CFIs. Refreshing way to give CFIs tools to teach even today's flight students. "
