The Complete CFI Binder was designed for flight instructor applicants, current aviation instructors and even airline pilots who instruct on the side. This book contains the material for each and every testable subject area found in the FAA CFI PTS. Each lesson plan contained within this book is mandatory for the CFI Practical Examination. Immediately, you’ll notice that this is the best CFI Binder™ ever created. As it not only contains each lesson plan you’ll need for the practical, and to teach your students; but also is “all-encompassing.” This is advantageous, as all of the content that you’ll need in order to study, or teach, is found directly within this book!

The Complete CFI Binder was designed to arm our customers with an arsenal of “quality” lesson plans, which are loaded with the most comprehensive aeronautical knowledge, needed to not only pass the CFI Oral Exam, but to also successfully teach the material to your students.

The incredible benefit of having all needed content at your finger tips, built into this book, eliminates the need for additional resources, or the act of doing your own research to build your own lesson plans. This book is a godsend for the CFI Applicant during the study process! Furthermore, after obtaining your CFI, this book can and should be used to comprehensively educate your students! The Complete CFI Binder is a resource that has been meticulously, and comprehensively engineered to yield only the most successful aviation instructors.

    5 out of 5 Made My Preparation Less Intimidating!

    (verified owner)

    I approached the CFI prep with doubt purely due to the amount of information one has to assemble to teach all of the required topics. This binder allows one to get a great foundation while still adding their own touch!

    5 out of 5 Great Product

    (verified owner)

    I did a one month boot camp CFI, CFII program in January. I did my best to write my own lesson plans but ultimately purchased or was given several different plan packets from various companies and places. Most were too wordy, confusing or just plane black and white from a past era. A classmate turned me on to Pilotnick two weeks before my check ride. I didn’t want to spend anymore money but ended up buying the packet. Great decision: ended up using these plans for my check ride in spite of doing all my prep with other plans. They are that good that I felt comfortable substituting at the last minute and nailed the check ride. Great content, colors, videos, great format that keeps your attention and makes it easy.

    5 out of 5 San Diego Christian College pilots use PilotNick CFI Binder to help pass the CFI checkride.

    (verified owner)

    As the Director of Aviation for San Diego Christian college I found creating the CFI notebook a daunting task for our college-student CFI candidates. While studying for classes, working on CFI ratings, and all that aviation college students deal with in academia – creating the CFI notebook was incredibly time-consuming, and the sheer enormity of the project caused our pilots to put it off as long as possible, and in some cases, do a less-than-their-best job when they did. The PilotNick CFI Notebook is the most advanced and easy-to-use notebook in existence. While we don’t advocate using the commercial version for the CFI oral, we encourage our students to study the contents, then personalize their own notebooks in the likeness of the PilotNick Binder to use in front of the FAA. The binder catches all necessary topics, parses them into “chewable bites,” and makes common sense out of some difficult-to-describe maneuvers and the aerodynamics involved. Many of our students have purchased the CFI Binder and are now more confident that they will deliver a thorough briefing and not miss any important aspect. I have also personally found the CFI Binder to be helpful teaching concepts, regulations and maneuvers to our students. I have also used some of the other resources including the FOI Study Guide – to help encourage our CFI students that a simple, ordered, method is best for processing all the information. I’m looking forward to using the Kneeboard reference guide. PilotNick puts out a quality product and I can’t say enough about how helpful it has been!

    5 out of 5 Saved Me Countless Hours

    (verified owner)

    I am a military helicopter pilot who has been out of fixed wing aviation for more than a decade. The biggest challenge for me getting back into fixed wing aviation and picking up my civilian flight qualifications was the time that it required. The Complete CFI Binder made becoming a Certified Flight Instructor possible while still on a tight schedule. It saved me countless hours putting my own lesson plans together and it also saved me time in that it focused my studying for the brief and the practical test. I was asked several questions during the brief that came right out of the binder and when I got them all correct we quickly moved on. I aced the brief and the check ride with a minimal investment in time. My instructor stated that he had never seen a product as thorough and complete as my Complete CFI Binder. I will definitely be purchasing the Complete CFII Binder!

    (verified owner)

    I am really pleased the product and my CFI training is progressing extremely well. Nicholas has done a spectacular job in gathering the information and presenting it in a logical format. The binder has saved me many hours in prep work which has the key benefit of allowing me to focus on “how to teach” the lesson. I am absolutely certain I will continue to use this product well beyond the check ride. Thanks Nick for the dedication and effort! Herb

    5 out of 5 Not just a series of lesson plans...

    (verified owner)

    The collection of information contained in “The Complete CFI Binder” is more than just outlines for “checking the block” on your CFI check-ride. The material does all that and goes 10 steps further. It has become my primary study tool, a go-to reference which is easy to navigate, and the interactive content is just icing on the cake. Another nice feature is the ability to imbed notes to yourself in the iBook (reminders, mnemonics, etc.) I expect to use this resource for years to come and will be buying the CFII and MEI versions.

    5 out of 5 Very Comprehensive Product That Boosted My Confidence Immensely

    (verified owner)

    I purchased this CFI Binder prior to getting my first instructor rating (which was actually my MEI) and used it to study for the non-multi-engine specific areas of my test. Of course I used it for my check rides, too. It is very comprehensive and boosted my confidence immensely. My examiner challenged me on couple items, but I just sat patiently while he looked up the information and proved himself wrong. I knew I had the most current information and everything required to pass the test was in my magic binder. Since I began teaching I’ve referred to it and found it very intuitive. Thank you!

    5 out of 5 A Product That Goes Above & Beyond FAA Requirements

    (verified owner)

    This is a great product that will not only assist me in getting my CFI but be useful in teaching in the future! This product goes a step above the FAA requirement to have a CFI Binder! As it comes equipped with all of the references and material needed for the oral exam, and to teach students, after passing the practical.

    The recent change to a subscription based plan for the product was a bit of a surprise, but after careful thought, I still couldn’t think of another product that would serve the same purpose, and be updated continuously for the money. M. Bills, Windsor, VA

    5 out of 5 My Instructor Was So Impressed, He Now Recommends The Complete CFI Binder to Other CFI Candidates

    (verified owner)

    I am a CFI candidate in Palm Beach, Florida that was building my own CFI binder, for about 3 months when I decided to purchase Nicks complete CFI binder and was amazed at how well it was put together. My instructor had reservations about me purchasing my CFI binder on line but after giving him lessons on airspace, aerodynamics, and aircraft systems he was so impressed that he now recommends it to other CFI candidates. If there was one con on the C 172 RG binder it would be that it does not include anything on Anti-ice/deicing systems. I Know the C 172 RG does not have anti or deicing technology but a general lesson on it would be nice considering it’s included in the PTS. I had my own lesson plan on Anti-ice/deicing systems so it was not a big deal, just a suggestion but overall the product is excellent and I would recommend it to every CFI candidate.

    5 out of 5 My Examiner Was Totally Blown Away With The Preparation & Presentation of The Complete CFI Binder!

    (verified owner)

    I let my CFI, CFII, and MEI license lapse several years ago. Getting my certificates re-validated was a daunting task as I had to gather a tremendous amout of information again from scratch. I printed the CFI Binder and supplemented it with the appropriate Advisory Circulars. The examiner was totally blown away with the preparation and presentation I had when he saw all the tasks and lesson plans neatly organized in two 3 inch binders. The oral was a breeze because I was able to reference material when needed fast and efficiently. The Complete CFI Binder saved me months of work! Very professionally done!!

    5 out of 5 Outstanding!! I HIGHLY Recommend The Complete CFI Binder.

    (verified owner)

    Outstanding!! I HIGHLY recommend The Complete CFI Binder. I am a daily flyer with 4000ish hours of jet time. I have prepared several times over the years for the CFI ride. Did seemingly endless lesson plans just get to a point and say, “I don’t have time for this stuff” and shelved it. I have been flying paperless for around 5 years the ability to have all the lesson plans at my finger tips all the time was just my speed. The binder has everything that I could ask for and more. Save yourself a lot of time and energy get the binder study and go get your Cert.

    5 out of 5 The Holy Grail of Lesson Plans!

    (verified owner)

    The Holy Grail of lesson plans! Every lesson is thoroughly explained. It’s the kind of binder that not only one should use to study for the practical exam, but also use during ones CFI career. The attention to detail and the continued support that Nick provides is superb. Don’t waste your time or money on any other CFI training aid. Just get the best from the start.

    I’m normally not one to leave reviews, but after my Designated Examiner expressed how pleased he was with the presentation of all the lessons plans, and my knowledge and confidence level of the material, I had no doubt that the Complete CFI Binder was a HUGE key to my success; and it’s not easy to impress examiners… Thank you Nick for your dedication. -Daniel Sanchez, Orlando Florida.

    5 out of 5 The Best CFI Resource On The Market Today!

    (verified owner)

    I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN A REVIEW ON ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE IN MY LIFE. THIS PRODUCT DEMANDS IT. As a five-thousand hour retired Navy F-14 instructor, I can say with absolute certainty that The Complete CFI Binder is far and away the best CFI resource on the market today. Don’t buy the excuse, “You’ll learn more if you take the time to build your own binder.” Truth is, you’ll learn more if you spend less time copying, cutting and pasting and more time studying this invaluable resource. Based on the PTS, Nick’s binder covers everything you need for a successful checkride and beyond. Well researched, meticulously organized and masterfully presented, Nick’s binder will be a document you reference for as long as you are a practicing CFI. I’d give it ten stars if I could!

    (verified owner)

    Nick’s CFI Binder is truly the best set of material for CFI candidates and other pilots looking to gain an edge in the industry. Its simple layout encourages you to dive right in to the material and start learning. I found his work after spending several months of creating my own binder only to realize mine was constantly needing corrections and additions. Nick has done something very special that has never before been available on the internet; he has crafted the ultimate collection of relevant knowledge for aviators that is full and complete. My confidence has already risen substantially as I prepare for my CFI Practical exam. Coupled with his complementary lifetime updates and catered lesson plans of your liking grants you the paramount of practical knowledge. This binder is designed not only for you but your future students as well due to its easy to read style. I highly recommend investing in the one time payment and stop wasting time and money on an endless cycle of editing an out of date binder; Nick’s has it all! -Alex Marsh Oshkosh, WI
