LESSON 6 – Steep turns and ground reference maneuvers
Dual – ground: 0.5, flight: 1.0
Objective: Introduce student to performance maneuvers
fundamentals of ground reference maneuvers
wake turbulence avoidance
maneuvering during slow flight
turns around a point
Ability to maintain specific ground track during ground-reference maneuvers
Altitude, airspeed, and heading within PTS standards during straight and level flight
NEXT LESSON: #7, Maneuvers review
Suggested student homework assignment:
1) Review previously assigned reading, research the answers to any questions, and be prepared to discuss them during the preflight ground briefing of the review lesson.
2) Diagram ground reference maneuvers showing wind corrections at different positions during the maneuvers.
