GO BEYOND THE TEXTBOOK—MITIGATE THE RISKS WITH THIS SAFETY SPOTLIGHT
Pilots may think that maneuvering flight only includes hazardous operations such as buzzing. But maneuvering flight includes formation flying, aerial work, stalls/spins, canyon flying, aerobatics, and normal flight operation. For example, when you fly in the traffic pattern, you’re also performing maneuvering flight. Basically, any type of flying performed close to the ground or involving steep turns and aerobatics is considered maneuvering.
This safety spotlight explains the associated risks and provides suggestions to minimize them.
