Get rid of the paper! The Complete CFI Binder is an interactive, dynamic, electronic product. Designed for exclusive use on the iPad.



The Complete CFI Binder is more than just lesson plans. Our product is unique and likely very different than anything you’ve ever seen before. Our product was designed to resemble a Teachers Manual. The first of its kind. Whether you’re a Flight Instructor in training or an already certificated instructor. This product is for YOU! The Complete CFI Binder is an all-encompassing teachers guide, filled with all the necessary content you’d need to teach your CFI lessons and teach your first flight students.

You’ll quickly realize that The Complete CFI Binder nearly replaces most, if not all, of the “extra” supplemental FAA resources that you’re probably very familiar with. No need to bring all of these books with you to each lesson. Instead, bring one single resource: The Complete CFI Binder. You’ll almost never need to use any other resource to teach your student a ground lesson.


Creating your own CFI Binder is one of the most time-consuming, and daunting tasks of obtaining your Flight Instructor Certificate. Our product, The Complete CFI Binder, is a completely unified, completely finished textbook that includes all areas of operation, and all technical subject areas required, as per the CFI PTS. With a product like The Complete CFI Binder, building your own CFI Binder is a complete waste of time!

Here’s why…

As a CFI Applicant, you have no practical experience, and likely have little to no teaching qualifications. You’re “in training” to become an aviation instructor. A teacher of all things related to flight training. At this point in your career, you likely have no idea what needs to be in a CFI Binder, or how to piece together the relevant content that is important, or content that you’d need while you’re teaching. Building your own CFI Binder is a monumental feat that should never be undertaken by someone who’s just “learning the ropes.” A proper CFI Binder should be built by a professional who has years of practical experience to share. Trust us, we’ve been doing this for a while.

Through independent research, we discovered that the vast majority of pilots who’ve either become CFI’s or those who have failed while trying, all possessed a CFI Binder that was disorganized, and chaotic! Most applicant binders that we reviewed had content that was literally held into place with a piece of tape, and images that were drawn on a cocktail napkin. In-fact, most of the binder’s we saw lacked fundamental information that would help an applicant on the practical test. Building your own CFI Binder, especially to our standard of perfection, would take thousands of hours and an insurmountable amount of patients. We know. Because we’ve done it.

Nearly 80% of all CFI Applicants never actually get their CFI Certificate because they realize the tremendous amount of work involved and simply quit, or they fail. We don’t want you to be a statistic. We’ve done all of the heavy-lifting for you so that all you’ll need to do is focus on studying our material, and pass the CFI Practical!


Whether you’re a CFI Applicant who’s just starting the journey to become a FAA Certified Flight Instructor or an applicant who’s been at it for a while. You absolutely need a copy of The Complete CFI Binder! Our lesson plans have been engineered the assist our customers with the fundamental knowledge needed to pass the CFI Oral on the first try. 

Based on pass-rate statistics provided by the Denver FSDO, nearly 80% of initial CFI-A Applicants fail their initial Practical Exam. The majority of the failures occur during the Oral Exam. The typical CFI applicant doesn’t realize it, but he or she actually begins to fail the CFI Oral Exam before they even begin. The key to success begins with the preparation work. Your pass or fail outcome is almost entirely based on your aeronautical knowledge as a pilot. Retaining what you’ve learned throughout your flying career can be a daunting, as there is a tremendous amount of information to remember… This is why The Complete CFI Binder is such an invaluable resource.

This is your get-out-of-jail-free card. Can’t remember something on your CFI Practical?  Don’t worry! The Complete CFI Binder was designed to arm you with an arsenal of “Quality” Lesson Plans, loaded with the most comprehensive aeronautical knowledge that you’ll need, not only to pass your CFI Oral but also to successfully teach the material to your future students! Our lesson plans cover every single testable subject area of the most current version of the CFI PTS!
