School daze
Just when you thought it was safe to sleep through ground school...
Maneuvering flight includes buzzing, formation flying, aerial work, stalls/spins, canyon flying, aerobatics, and normal flight operation. Basically, any type of flying performed close to the ground—in the traffic pattern, for example—or involving steep turns and aerobatics is considered maneuvering. Unfortunately, more fatal accidents occur in maneuvering flight than any other pilotrelated category. The good news: Getting a handle on aerodynamic concepts that play roles in maneuvering flight doesn’t have to involve dry textbooks and dense equations. Here are some free resources for you and your students: • Essential Aerodynamics: Stalls, Spins, and Safety interactive online course • Maneuvering Flight Safety Advisor

ASF’s newsletter for the serious flight instructor
I just finished your CFI to CFI publication and really enjoyed the selection of articles that you included. I am an assistant professor at South Dakota State University where I teach ground classes as well as flight instruction. Do you take submissions? I have a couple of ideas that I would love to share with other flight instructors. Thanks for your time and keep up the great work! — Cody Christensen, Brookings, South Dakota We welcome your story ideas, safety tips, and submissions to share with the flight instructor community. Please submit to: ASF Editor, CFI to CFI, 421 Aviation Way, Frederick, Maryland 21701, or in an e-mail to asf@aopa.org. —The Newsletter Production Team
