Commercial pilot video tip: Eights on Pylons

There are several new flight maneuvers to learn during Commercial Pilot Training. One of the new ground reference maneuvers is called Eights on Pylons, which involves flying a figure 8 pattern over the ground while varying the aircraft’s altitude in order to maintain a defined visual reference to preselected reference points, called pivot points, or pylons.

This segment appears in Sporty’s all-new Commercial Pilot Training course, which recently added a new video training component featuring over 13 hours of HD video training and VR/360 flight maneuvers.
