Exercise 9.1 – Medium Level Turns


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.

It was a lovely day and the visibility was amazing. I was able to see Thorpe Park and even the Wembley Arch from over Woking.

Unfortunately I didn’t set the camera recording so there’e no video from this flight. However the audio recording was working and so was the GPS track so here’s a video of these overlayed.
