Exercise 9.1 – Medium Level Turns

Intro

This lesson was to learn how to perform medium turns. Medium turns are at 30° while maintaining a constant altitude.

This lesson really clicked for me, I noticed that more of the flying was now becoming second nature. Still lots to learn! I was targeting 65knts on the decent to land very accurately, although I should have been targeting 75knts! Oops.
