The Lazy Eight

The lazy eight is an excellent training maneuver. During this maneuver you will climb, turn, and dive through an ever-changing range of speeds. This maneuver requires almost constant adjustment to the stick and attention to where you are in the maneuver.

You should attempt to end this maneuver at the same altitude and on the same heading as when you started your first turn.
