Cockpit Drill Control

Turning

When turning the steering wheel, avoid crossing your hands. Except at low speeds, this can reduce your control and can cause an accident. Feed the rim of the steering wheel through your hands. Vary your hand movements according to the amount of lock you want.

This is called the pull—push technique.

To turn left

  • Slide your left hand up the wheel, but not beyond 12 o'clock.
  • Pull the wheel downwards with your left hand. At the same time, slide your right hand down the wheel against the direction the wheel is turning.
  • Grip and push up with your right hand while you slide your left hand up the wheel.
  • Repeat the second and third steps as necessary.
