  1. The slip used during a cross wind landing was not mentioned. The reversing of the rudder against the
    ailerons to keep the aircraft aligned straight with the runway.

  2. Hi,
    I teach low level flying. When a student turns up for the low level endorsement I ask them which way their aircraft yaws on take-off. If they can’t answer that then I know I’m going to have problems. In an aircraft that yaws to the right on take-off is doing a low level steep turn to the right and the student does not apply left rudder then they inclined to auger into the ground. Pity.
