Private Pilot Lessons: Teaching Steep Turns

Join me and Donald (a solo student pilot) as we review steep turns. I teach steep turns without reference to instruments. I’ve found that those who focus on the instruments, end up chasing the instruments up and down and stop looking out the window. By putting your finger on the horizon/windshield intersection, you are flying by sight picture and feel which turns out to be extremely accurate. Donald’s first turn to the left ends with no altitude loss or gain! See it works!
