The primary purpose of Fundamentals of Instructing FAA Written Exam is to provide you with the easiest, fastest, and least expensive means of passing the Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) knowledge test, which is required before you can obtain your flight and/or ground instructor certificate. You are not required to take the FOI knowledge test if you hold a FAA flight or ground instructor certificate; hold a current teacher's certificate authorizing you to teach at an educational level of the 7th grade or higher; or, you are currently employed as a teacher at an accredited college or university.

Appendix B of this book is a reprint of "Section Two -- The Flight Instructor" from the FAA's Aviation Instructor's Handbook (AC 60-14). It is useful reading and periodic review for instructors. It consists of three chapters:

  1. Flight Instructor Characteristics and Responsibilities
  2. Techniques of Flight Instruction
  3. Planning Instructional Activity
Appendix C of this book consists of suggestions on how to find or become a sponsor for a "ground school". It also contains suggestions on course organizations, lecture outlines, and class presentations.

Does the job.

  • By John from San Luis Obispo CA USA on Thursday, November 01, 2018
  • Pros: Tells you why the "incorrect" answers are not what the FAA wants.
  • Review: I'm not sure that you can pass this knowledge test without using a study guide. In fact, for this particular test, you are better off not reading the Fundamentals of Instructing book at all and just studying the Gleim book.

Can't go wrong with Gleim

  • By Joe // PP-ASEL from Madison AL USA on Thursday, January 14, 2016
  • Pros: Gleim's study units and the FAA Aviation Instructor's Handbook, in one book, along with Gleim's end of unit questions and a practice exam.
  • Review: For those desiring to becoming aviation instructors, jumping into the FOI material will be quite a departure from the normal study of aerodynamics, airspace, weight & balance, et al. However, unless one already has a teaching certificate, FOI is in your future! First off, the material is very beneficial and will change the way you approach your own future flight training. In my opinion, Gleim does a masterful job of presenting this very complicated/theoretical info into those "bite-sized chunks" that one can realistically absorb. They also include the FAA Aviation Instructor's Handbook (minus the 6 appendices, which are not relevant toward the FOI exam.) My studying advice: read the chapter(s) in the FAA handbook, then read the respective outline (study unit), then go through the questions at the end of the study unit. You'll be amazed at how quickly these concepts will soak into your brain and, in short order, you'll be ready to take the FOI exam.

Easy to follow

Good book

  • By Rami from Charlotte, NC on Tuesday, October 19, 2010
  • Pros:
  • Review: I took the test today and scored 80%!!  I used Gleim for my private/instrument/commercial and scored 93, 93, 97 respectively.. but in my FOI i scored 80%.  There were at least 20 questions not in this book.  And some questions had totally different answers than the one in this book.. normally I go with confidence but this time it got me nerves when I saw the test. But if u study the book good u will pass.. I passed it with 80%.. not my goal.. I expected to score 100 cause I studied really hard for this one.. I already sent an email to Gleim about it and hopefully they update it on their new edition.
