The Fundamentals of Instructing, FOI, Chapter summaries are chapter summaries from the Aviation Instructor’s Handbook from faa.gov. These chapter summaries are designed to keep you focused on the main parts of each chapter. There are notes on key subjects, bulleted lists and breakout boxes and where possible acronyms to memorize what DPEs and Inspectors are likely to expect for you to have memorized..
You should read the Aviation Instructor’s Handbook first, available at faa.gov, and if you are a CFI Bootcamp student, watch all of the FOI videos prior to using this document. The idea is for you to understand the material by reading the handbook and watching our videos, and then have a source like this document that summarizes chapters and points out key ideas and concepts.
