OBJECTIVE: To develop smoothness, coordination, orientation, diversion of attention and control techniques while exectuing maximum performance flight maneuvers.
WHY? This maneuver is designed to help develop perfect coordination of of controls through a wide range of airspeeds and altitudes so that certain accuracy points are reached with planned altitude and airspeed. Think of this maneuver like a fun (kids) roller coaster ride- it isn't called "lazy" for nothing!
Cool Fact: This is the only standard flight maneuver in which the there is no constant force on the controls.
