Please Wake Me Up When I Start Bursting With Knowledge! :)


May 23, 2006

This isn't all of them,, I have a good handful more of DVD, computer software and audio training aids (as well as a few more books - so this just represents the core of the 'assault on my brain' <g>).

II have to admit when I look at the above books spread before me there is a moment where I wonder how I've managed to cram a lot of this information into my tiny little noggin? :)  To aid my study, both to reinforce it and make it productive towards dual tasks simultaneously I'm starting to build the content of my CFI website (that is the one that will be up when I get my CFI <g>) and in doing so will cover the same topics that are part and parcel to my study.

The website will also have short video snippets on various instructional topics like aerodynamics, weight and balance,, just to name a few.  I'll videotape most of these with my 'ebay special' digital video camera (that I acquired recently for a very low price) and edit the video and make it available on my soon-to-come CFI website.  I'll be doing a lot of the whiteboard demonstrations on this dry erase board (pictured below).

  By the way, I know you likely can't see it that well,  but FlyKid drew the picture that sits underneath my dry erase board.  It was part of a poster he had to design for a book report that he did on the Richard Bach book, "Nothing By Chance" (read it if you haven't,,, great book!).

Anyway, some of the video instructional snippets will be videotaped at this whiteboard.

In regards to the CFI website I'm currently building; I'm presuming the best way to go is to create the content for the Commercial Pilot certificate information, first and then move on to the Private Pilot and Flight Instructor.  I must admit that I'm having a 'battle' with myself trying to decide whether I really want to include information on the Recreational Pilot Certificate.  I may or may not... 'Jury is still out', on this one, in a manner of speaking...

Well, back to the 'salt mines', I mean books <g>...   Hopefully I'll be able to make a dent in some of the web content for my CFI website by the end of this week.


Good Flights !!!
