201A

Flying Relative

(201A) is the first step in the Flight-1 Air to Air Program. After a comprehensive brief on canopy collisions, the student is introduced to flying relative to another canopy working in the air with a Flight-1 instructor. Here the pilot learns the true reference of how the controls effect the system relative to another. The "wind tunnel" for canopy pilots.
