    Amen! When a student can fly the pattern (in addition to many maneuvers) with the panel covered, he's doing well, likely ready to solo, if he's consistent.

    Have you tried adjusting aileron trim? Or perhaps rudder trim? Either one could potentially do that.

    Mmmm... I love how you did this one -- outstanding job of one of the most important maneuvers you'll do as a pilot (mixing in the others, of course). Trim is, indeed, a very necessary control in slow...

    Remember the vintage- lotsa folks didn't have seat belts in their cars yet. The Jetsons started in 1962, and seat belts weren't federally mandated for new cars in the U.S. until 1968.
