S Turns Across a Road – Ground Reference Maneuvers

The goal of an S Turn is to fly two equally sized half-circles even in windy conditions. These turns are private pilot ground reference maneuvers that don’t get practiced often but are a great tool for learning wind correction and developing precise aircraft control. Follow along as Jason demonstrates this maneuver in the Cessna 172.  ... read more

My Favorite Checkride Question

I have enjoyed your online ground school. It was just what I was looking for. This course has allowed me to learn new things, keep up the knowledge part of flying and to interact with you and other pilots through the weekly workshops, monthly check rides and webinars.

I have also enjoyed and benefited from the frequent e-mails you have sent. It has also made me realize confidence in my knowledge skills and allowed me to move on to the IFR ground work I have been eager to get to. Dean Hoopengardner
