Commercial pilot video tip: How to fly a Chandelle

The Chandelle is one of several maneuvers you’ll learn to fly during your training towards the Commercial Pilot certificate. It is a maximum performance, 180° climbing turn that begins from approximately straight-and-level flight and concludes with the airplane in a wings-level, nose-high attitude just above stall speed.
