Hello, I did all my training up to CFI at the FlightSafety International Academy in Vero Beach in 1997.
Due to familial obligations, I have not flown since. I would like to start flying again. I would like to get a copy (as current as possible) of the FlightSafety Academy Training Manual with Amplified Checklist for the PA-28 Cherokee and the PA-28 Arrow. I got a copy when I enrolled back in 1995 but it is old an missing some information.
I contacted FlightSafety Academy in Vero Beach, and although I am an alumni, they refused to sell me the training manuals on the basis that I am not a currently enrolled student. I really loved those training manuals and it be would be great if I could get my hands on complete ones. Any help would be appreciated.

Why don't you just purchase online the manuals for the airplanes, or go to the local airport that may have them to buy. A PA-28 is a PA-28, etc. I have flown all of them so I guess I don't understand why you have to have all of the FSI stuff along with them.

it is a question of personal choice. I was trained at FSI, and I do like the way they teach using the PA-28 training manuals with amplified checklist.

About a year ago they changed all their checklists to standard Piper checklists due to liability. The FSI checklists were better! Damn lawyers.

All students had to turn in their old checklists to get the new ones for free. I still have the FSI PA-28 Warrior checklists, not the Arrow. If you are interested, let me know. . . I am working on my CFI right now though (not at FSI) so it's gonna be a week or two before I have the time to find and scan them. PM me in two weeks (sorry) to remind me.
