    Also, these maneuvers can be performed without undue stress on the
    airplane.
    A good examiner will have a fair handle on how good an applicant will perform in the air simply by watching that applicant do the preflight, taxi-out, and run up. These two maneuvers can finish the job in the air.
    Just as an aside, it's harder to do a well performed SHALLOW Lazy Eight
    than it is a steep one :-))

    Would you mind to talk us through one, and tell what the physical movements are, and what the pilot is looking at/for along the way, to do it right?

    Oh Man Jim, that's a long post. You know me and the way I get into
    things :-)) I don't mind but you guys could save me a ton of typing if
    you just looked this one up with a good reference.
    Right off the top of my head I'd use the Kershner Advanced Pilot Manual.
    I've used that myself for many years.

    why do people still have to show they can parallel park a car to pass a >>driving test.. hardly used in most areas now..

    Come to the Northeast US, there's as much parallel parking as there
    ever was! <G>

    So my daughter found out.. after moving to Boston for college, then she understood why she had to for her license in the wide open areas of the southwest. << daddy was right again>>
