The following is a note from your CFII instructor, Dr. Phil Polstra, regarding materials needed for the ground school and where to source them.
This Private Pilot Handbook is Required:
Rod Machado’s Private Pilot Handbook 2nd edition from 2008. They can buy the book directly from Rod Machado using my affiliate link http://rodmachado.com/?aff=151
FAR/AIM (optional) – it is all online but some prefer to have a paper book
New York Sectional chart (optional) – if they are doing flight training they will likely need one of these or an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB)
Plotter(optional) – if they are doing flight training they will likely need this as well
E6B flight computer(optional) – paper or electronic, there are also apps available for smart phones
I would recommend any rotating plotter (though we will cover both). The cheapest one on Amazon should be fine. I found this one.
For an E6B it is up to the student as far as what they prefer. If they get a cheap paper one it should be fine. If they want to commit to an electronic one I like Sporty’s which is also $15 cheaper than alternatives. For most I would recommend the cheap paper one and they can drop the $60 for the electronic one if they actually pursue the flight training later.
