Tasks

This page contains pre-made tasks. This page serves two primary purposes:

  1. Provide a set of reasonable tasks for the beginning to early-intermediate cross-country pilot. With your instructor, choose a suitable task for the day’s (forecasted) weather and your abilities.

  2. The secondary purpose of this page is to provide intermediate cross-country pilots a set of tasks to choose from without needing the SeeYou software.
