    A lesson plan for everything in the PTS’s
    All the references listed in the PTS’s
    AOPA air space guide
    Endorsements guide
    Sectional instructions
    Summaries/outlines for all that FOI stuff that’s hard to remember
    E6B instructions

    FAA books (Instructor, Pilot, etc.)

    These should all look/be well highlighted, noted, and worn. Don’t just print – read and be able to find answers. My edition of the FAR/AIM had a good list of what applies specifically to each certificate/rating, so I hit all of that with a highlighter as I read/studied.

    Thank you,

    What PTS’s should I get ?
    Also, any helpful CFI video series to explain the FOI and other topics? I tend to be a visual learner.

    Thank You

    You should have current copies of the private, commercial and CFI PTS’s. It probably is a good idea to have the sport pilot PTS as well if you are training for an ASE instructor rating.
