AVIATOR90: Now That’s What I Call Flying Circles

We continue looking at basic maneuvers with Point Turns. The “point” is to look out your side window and pick a visual landmark to circle around in a smooth manner: compensating for wind, continually adjusting bank angle, and maintaining altitude all while keeping your eyes off your instruments. Chris Palmer from Angle of Attack takes you through a typical left-hand turn around a radio tower.
