    “A syllabus is intended to be a summary of a course of training, it should be fairly brief, yet comprehensive enough to cover essential information. This information is usually presented in an outline format with lesson-by-lesson coverage.”
    – Aviation Instructors Handbook FAA-H-8083-9A, Chapter 6.

    A syllabus is an instructors, or flight schools, reordering of the curriculum set for by the FAA. (ie: F.A.R.’s) This reordering is done by whatever way you wish using the Building Block technique. Each Syllabus is unique to its creator. Asking to use someone else’s would be like asking to wear their clothes.

    Syllabuses, by definition, are already condensed. If you are needing a guide line you can simply look at many different programs: ASA, Sporty’s, and Cessna all have a syllabus available to the public. Flight schools such as, Embry Riddle and American Flyers have created their own syllabus.

    Another option you can do is to look at the Instrument PTS, and use each TASK as the main points of a Syllabus.
