As I move onward through the process of gaining my CFI credentials, I've noticed we don't have a specific spot for us PoA minions to discuss the various topics that pertain to being or becoming a flight instructor. We do have "Flight Training", but that's a bit broad for what I am thinking of. I'd like to see a "CFI Lounge" (or other quality/creative name) forum for us to discuss topics like how to teach XXX topic to the student what you should do to be a really good instructor I'm in a rut teaching this lump of clay in the left seat.... how do I get through to him CFI stories, "There I was, in the RH seat of a Cherokee and the student...." I just got my credentials, what now? Do I go with a local or regional school or remain independent What do I need to know about the business aspects of being a CFI (aka income, taxes, expenses, etc) and more. The objective is bring in some organization so topics like this and similar are grouped into a sub forum that makes sense, versus scattered through Flight Following, Flight Training, Hangar Talk, etc.
