CHAPTER 6. Flight Manuevers

Practicing the basics with precision and understanding the effects on the pilot and the aircraft develop a “feel” for the aircraft in fl ight so the pilot can concentrate on the fl ying mission at hand and not on the mechanical movements. The ability to perform any assigned maneuver is only a matter of obtaining a clear visual and mental conception of it so that perfect performance is a habit without conscious effort.

Begin with the fl ight basics to build a foundation for precision fl ying. Takeoffs/landings and emergency maneuvers are covered in later chapters. All fl ying tasks are based on the four fundamental fl ight maneuvers:

  • Straight-and-level fl ight
  • Turns
  • Climbs
  • Descents

Controlled fl ight consists of either one or a combination of these basic maneuvers.
