Flying with Flight Simulator – Flight Maneuver Spotlight


Welcome to the latest edition of the Flight Maneuver Spotlight series.

This is just one of the 14 flight simulator lessons included in Sporty’s 2021 Learn to Fly Course. Each one includes lesson goals, initial setup steps, performance standards, and common errors.

To help visualize this flight simulator lesson, we recorded the flight in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Here’s what it looks like:
