Steep Turn

One of the maneuvers all pilots have to demonstrate on a checkride is a steep turn. That's a 360 degree turn with a bank angle of 45 degrees. It's fun, because you have to give a little back pressure on the yoke to keep your nose up, and add a little power to maintain speed.

In a December flight, I demonstrated this for Linda. She took a video of it.
