Flying Instructors & ExaminersA place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!
Again, depends what you want, it is broadly based on the RAF syllabus as most uk ones are, but modified, if you PM me your email I can send it you so you can see. You can then of course mod it as you want to fit your requirements.
Try e-mailing editor of AP3456 CRN-CFS-AP3456Editor@mod.uk to see if it they can get a copy for you. If you can't get it the nearest thing I have seen was a set of notes provided to a guy who had done a FI course at 'On Track' Aviation in the Midlands.
Mass brief is a briefing to large (mass) group with regards to the air exercise that will be flown, including the aerodynamic considerations. Can be up to 1 hour.
Board brief is a 1 to 1 briefing by instructor to student just before the flight. It only covers the air exercise, which the student should have already learned during the mass brief. Normally max 15 minutes.
However, in "civilian" world, we still use the term mass brief, but not necessarily to a large group of students, but to mean that the briefing is about the air exercise including aerodynamic considerations. Board brief is only air exercise.
Shumway - a mass brief is not linked to each air exercise, for example you would have mass briefs that covered stalling, navigation, instrument flying in total, which would be covered in the air by a number of air exercises (which each have their own board brief). Civilian terminology is more commonly the long and short or pre-flight briefs which follow same concept.
