Video Tip of the Week: rectangular course

The rectangular course is one of the most basic maneuvers pilots learn during flight training. While it may sound boring, there’s a lot to learn from this simple pattern. In our latest Video Tip of the Week, we walk through each step of the rectangular course, with in-cockpit video and 3D animations. Even if you’re already an experienced pilot, this maneuver is a great way to keep your stick and rudder skills sharp.

The video clip below is from Sporty’s complete Learn to Fly Course.
