Steep Turns

Upon completion of your clearing turns, select a reference point on the horizon and note your heading and altitude. Roll into a 50° angle-of-bank turn at or below VA. During roll-in, smoothly add power and slowly increase back pressure on the yoke to maintain altitude. Maintain coordinated flight and trim to relive control pressure. Maintain […]

Chandelles

Upon completion of your clearing turns, select a reference point on the horizon and note your heading and altitude. Roll into a 50° angle-of-bank turn at or below VA. During roll-in, smoothly add power and slowly increase back pressure on the yoke to maintain altitude. Maintain coordinated flight and trim to relive control pressure. Maintain […]

Lazy Eights

Align your flight path with your initial reference point and establish straight-and-level flight at the recommended airspeed. Begin a gradual climbing turn toward the 45° point, increasing pitch attitude while you slowly increase the angle of bank. As you pass through the 45° point of the turn, your pitch attitude should be at its maximum […]

Eights on Pylons

Adjust your power to recommended entry airspeed. As you approach the pylons, the entry altitude you select should be close to the estimated pivotal altitude. Pivotal Altitude = TAS (in mph) * .15 Enter a diagonal between the pylons from the downwind side of the pylons. Maintain straight-and-level flight until you are approximately abeam the […]
