The Kneeboard Reference Guide makes both teaching and learning easier for the instructor and a new student. As a new flight instructor, you’re still learning the ropes. You’ll be further mastering your skill as a pilot whilst also teaching and critiquing your student’s airmanship simultaneously.
That’s a lot of multitasking! So, we created something to help you multitask.
The Kneeboard Reference Guide is a tool designed primarily for new flight instructors, but can be used by any instructor at any skill level. This tool will help your student mentally visualize each maneuver in the airplane, in-flight, prior to its execution. Thereby solidifying what was learned in the debrief room before the flight, and giving the student that little extra bit of mental acuity needed to perform the task to a satisfactory level. Each maneuver is very clearly explained with graphics. This powerful product can be handed to your student for review, prior to maneuver execution.
The Kneeboard Reference Guide was designed with a simple concept in mind: harness the power of a teachers guide, like a CFI Binder lesson plan for a maneuver, but make it small enough to take in the cockpit. That’s just what we did! The Reference Guide has been designed in Kneeboard Format, which allows portability, and encourages it’s use directly in the cockpit, with your student.
The Kneeboard Reference Guide was designed as a condensed maneuver guide that a flight instructor could bring along in the cockpit on a training flight to help a student visually recall how to execute a maneuver that was taught during the pre-brief on the ground. We all remember what it was like when we first learned a new maneuver during our pre-brief before our flight lesson. Remember the maneuver being drawn out on the whiteboard? It wasn’t uncommon to feel like you may have forgotten the purpose of that maneuver you were learning or even maybe one of two of the execution steps. It happens. We have all been there.
Finally… A visual aid exists in the cockpit.
The Kneeboard Reference Guide was created to help bridge and close those gaps that formed between the pre-briefing room and the actual flight. Armed with the Kneeboard Reference Guide, you can help your student mentally visualize a maneuver while in the cockpit, thus, removing all the ambiguity associated with trying to re-explain the maneuver once airborne.
The purpose of each maneuver is clearly explained and is visually presented with full-color graphics. This powerful product can be handed to your student whilst in the aircraft to be reviewed while the flight instructor demonstrates each maneuver. The Kneeboard Reference Guide solidifies the demonstration and performance technique of flight training.
