Commercial pilot video tip: Eights on Pylons

1 min read

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 Commercial Pilot Training course, which features over 13 hours of HD video training and VR/360 flight maneuvers.
