Advanced Airmanship Secrets

Ground Track Maneuvers - Part I

Ground track maneuvers are extremely useful and skill-building exercises.

They prepare you for:

  • Emergency landings
  • Assessing winds on the ground
  • Flying precise traffic patterns
  • Keeping mentally outside of the airplane without neglecting your airmanship tasks

This is where you'll see the importance of setting priorities according to the adage: aviate, navigate, communicate.
