The Commercial Maneuvers
Commonly known as “the commercial maneuvers,” this phase of training will have you perfecting chandelles, lazy eights, eights on pylons, steep spirals, and a 180-degree power-off accuracy approach to landing.
The skill required to perform these maneuvers to the prescribed standard helps increase pilot safety and proficiency. For example, the Chandelle is actually a combat maneuver from World War I! Pilots who perfect the Chandelle achieve fine control of the rudder with changes of pitch, bank, angle of attack, and airspeed. Proficient execution of the maneuver will allow you to perform a maximum performance climb while turning 180 degrees in the opposite direction, which also serves as an excellent aid when you need to climb and turn quickly in mountainous terrain.
Each of the commercial maneuvers has unique learning objectives, all culminating in skill refinement, enhanced safety, and pilot mastery. As a bonus, our students really enjoy learning about and executing these maneuvers.
