Flight 1 Skills Assessment & Introduction to the Bulldog
Flight 1 is a skills assessment sortie and introduction to the Bulldog. This sortie will enable
your instructor to taylor your subsequent sorties to meet your precise needs. It will also introduce
you to the constant speed propellor, flying the aeroplane at extreme attitudes and fighter pilot circuits.
Flight 2 General Handling, stalling and spinning
Flight 2 will concentrate on developing your skills in handling the aeroplane at extreme attitudes. You will also
practice stall and spin recovery techniques with the aim of enabling you to recognise the early onset of the stall
and take effective recovery action.
