The Break Turn
(Watch your energy level–you may have to increase power to maintain this turn for more than a second or two.)
- Flying straight and level, apply full left or right stick (1).
- Hold the stick until the horizon appears vertical. You're now in a maximum performance turn at 90° (2).
To maintain a break turn for more than a moment, you'll have to increase power. If you're already at 100 percent thrust, hit the afterburners.
