Eights on Pylons: Sporty’s Commercial Flight Maneuver Spotlight
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 video clip and maneuvers description appears in Sporty’s Commercial Pilot Course, which includes comprehensive knowledge test prep, flight maneuvers guide, oral exam tools and a comprehensive aviation library.
