Lesson plans

I'm in the process of recreating my lesson plans. The ones I have are a few years old and I thought the experience of recreating them would be helpful.

Anywho, one thing I noticed is that I only had lesson plans for flight maneuvers. My question is, should I have them prepared for lessons on areas such as airport operations and aircraft systems? Also, is this something the examiner would be looking for on a practical test?

Thanks!

I think most examiners still look for lesson plans. I have been out of the CFI business for bit now, but it would make sense. When I went through, I made a lesson plans for every single area in the CFI PTS along with most of the PPL and Commercial PTS. I may have gone overboard, but I was uber prepared for that oral :)

Thanks for the reply, Bike. With that I went back to the PTS and, viola, I think I found it.
