I agree.

Flight schools are designed to get people through the O&P.  Nothing more.  Same with most company training programs.

In the one I work for, the pilot training manual is just a re-hash of the commercial PTS maneuvers.  Hell, we were going to make some changes and even our FAA ops inspector told us we should "just follow the guidance" and "don't complicate the manual".  Why?  Because it would make HIS job harder - to actually have to decide if our deviation from following their guidance would still be meeting the intent of the guidance.  And it would add complication to their job because because they would have to know what's in our manual and then make sure we were actually teaching to our manual.

In other words, the FAA wants us to leave the manual "minimally acceptable" so that their jobs are easier.
