WHY BUY OUR PRODUCT?
Since the inception of our company in 2014, we have focused on making pilot certification easier. We’re a company that makes educational products by pilots, for pilots. We pride ourselves in producing the most successful CFI Binder™ that has ever existed on planet earth. We listen to our customers, and produce products that make their lives easier.
Both our CFI and CFII Binder were designed to enable the applicant to easily study the CFI and CFII course content from anywhere in the world. By developing the binder on the iPad, we have enabled our customers to travel the world while studying for their practical examination. We have completely eliminated the need for bulky books that an applicant would typically lug around while studying, or use while compiling their very own binder.
After the applicant has scheduled their check-ride, they can simply login to their customer account on PILOTNICK.COM and download their very own copy of their binder in print form. This is the same binder that the applicant has been studying from their iPad. Simple, easy, all with the click of a button!
Then, once the applicant has moved on with his or her career and becomes an airline pilot, the applicant will always have immediate access to the most up-to-date content, via their iPad, related to flight instruction. We provide perpetual updates to our products, which guarantees that they’ll always be kept up-to-date. You never know when you might want to pickup flight instruction again, perhaps as a side job, after you get your first airline gig. If you do, you’ll enjoy “up-to-date content” that our product will provide you when you teach your new students.
DON’T WASTE TIME CREATING YOUR OWN BINDER
Creating your own CFI Binder is one of the most time-consuming, and daunting tasks of obtaining your Flight Instructor Certificate. One of my favorite statements is: “You Get What You Pay For.” That statement is directly associated with hard work and a quality product. The Complete CFI Binder will prove to be an invaluable resource for the CFI Practical, and is worth every penny.
The Complete CFI Binder was developed by a team that focuses on perfection. Our founder, Nicholas Schvabenitz has personally seen many CFI binders during his career as a pilot, and can attest that each and every one of them, has displeased him. Nearly 98% of the time, they didn’t meet his standards of perfection. We have found that nearly all CFI Candidate’s, and even current CFI’s possess a chaotic, disorganized binder. Most of binders all had items that were merely taped into the book, and each binder consistently lacked comprehensive content that would be vital to a CFI candidate during his or her practical test. Creating your own binder to perfection requires thousands of hours, and a great deal of patience. If you do not have thousands of hours of time to devote to your binder, or do not have patience, your binder will not be useful to you on your practical examination. – Nicholas Schvabenitz (Author of The Complete CFI Binder)
Nearly 80% of all CFI Candidates never actually get the CFI Certificate because they realize the tremendous amount of work that is involved in obtaining the certificate, then quit, because they don’t want to put in the effort. Don’t be a statistic; by purchasing a copy of The Complete CFI Binder, you’ll immediately find that much of the work that you would have had to do on your own, has already been done for you. Because you no longer have to dedicate thousands of hours to building your own “perfect” binder, you can focus on studying the book to ensure that you understand the content and ultimately pass the CFI Practical.
TEACH WITH YOUR IPAD
The Complete CFI Binder was designed with the intentions of coupling technology with aviation by using the Apple iPad. This book has interactive content encompassed within each lesson. The book was intentionally designed this way, so that you could use it to help your students learn, after passing your CFI Practical. By having access to this book on your iPad, you’ll learn to appreciate how light and easy it is to walk around with. You can take pride in your ability to travel to and from the airport, in a very nimble fashion, as you’ll have the entire version of “The Complete CFI Binder” in electronic format on the iPad.
ONE BOOK FOR EVERYTHING
After purchasing our product, you’ll immediately notice that “The Complete CFI Binder” covers much more than just the standard FAA required CFI Lesson Plans. You’ll immediately notice that there’s a tremendous amount of content embedded directly within each subject area. This content was intentionally placed in the book to enable an Aviation Instructor to teach a student while utilizing one single resource. “Think of The Complete CFI Binder as a teachers guide.”
Let’s face it; there are so many FAA publications available today. Each one having different content, which can ultimately lead to confusion, cluttered workspaces, and in some cases; outdated material. The Complete CFI Binder virtually eliminates all of the extra FAA publications that an Aviation Instructor would need to have in their possession at the time of teaching a student.
Because our product is “all encompassing” you’ll almost never need to use any other publication to teach your student a ground lesson. Our product was designed with convenience in mind. The content within our product is perpetually updated throughout the year. So you’ll always have the most up-to-date information available to teach your students.
PASS YOUR CFI ORAL
If you’re a CFI applicant who is just starting the CFI course, or even an applicant who has been working on your CFI for some time, you absolutely need the lesson plans that are contained within “The Complete CFI Binder.” Our lesson plans have been designed to set our customer up for success, and to enable them to pass the CFI Oral Exam on the first try.
Based on pass-rate statistics provided by the Denver FSDO, nearly 80% of initial CFI-A applicants fail their Practical Exam. The majority of 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… Of course, there’s even more information to remember as an instructor pilot.
The Complete CFI Binder was designed to arm our customers with an arsenal of “Quality” Lesson Plans that are loaded with the most comprehensive aeronautical knowledge that you’ll need to not only pass your Oral Exam, but to successfully teach the content to your future students, as well! Our lesson plans cover every single testable subject area of the most current version (2015-2016) CFI PTS! Nothing has been left out! Instead of wasting time creating your own lesson plans, use ours, and skip the risk of not studying the correct information for your CFI Oral. We guarantee that our lesson plans are the best on planet earth!
Don’t make the mistake of failing your Oral Exam before you even begin the CFI course; be smart, be sensible, and arm yourself with “The Complete CFI Binder.”

LEARN TO EMBRACE CHANGE
Let’s face the facts. Over the past few years, the aviation industry has changed so quickly, sometimes it’s hard to keep up.
